Some people don't have dreams. They don't change anything. Growing is an exciting experience. Learn to live again. This may sound strange. Frank Ranz Austria January. This sounds strange. It is not true when adults think that they don't grow anymore. Other people dream and think how fine their lives could be. 1989 11 . The universe is endless.

The final thrust of PERSONAL POWER TRAINING is "Focus. a two-stage process begins. sleeping. Physical energy for stamina.IN PERSPECTIVE Overview PERSONAL POWER TRAINING is a fast-paced training program designed to quickly release and eliminate the negative belief systems that limit your personal growth. I help you stay sharply in focus while working towards achieving the personal and professional horizons you set. self-confidence.

Once your limitations have been examined and clarified. and financial growth. in an incredibly short time. concentration and discipline) the same level of intensity as your strongest survival instinct. I teach you to cultivate the energy you need to reach your new goals.CHAPTER #1 ." You will learn how to focus energy on any goal in a forceful new way.. This Personal Power Focusing technique brings to "nonsurvival" characteristics (self-esteem. professional. etc. Therefore the second stage of PERSONAL POWER TRAINING is Energy Cultivation. and beliefs that place lifelong limitations on your personal. PERSONAL POWER TRAINING will. teach you how to release and eliminate negative habits. The achievement of any goal demands an abundance of energy: 1. You will learn to generate internal physical energy on command. These techniques are a concentrated yet concise form of methods found at the core of many of the world's most potent mental disciplines. and 2. attitudes. and brings immediate and long lasting results. are the strongest instincts we possess. I will present them in a new form to meet the needs of professionals who want to change NOW. Mental energy for concise clear thought. Survival habits: eating.

" The reason I like working with commodity traders is that I can give them a tool and within a day they can use it many times. I have put the system together in a format. If I had to give a one sentence definition of what I do. In advance. minimizing. This is not therapy or instead of therapy.An Introductory Lecture (This lecture was given in February. attorneys. In the beginning. PERSONAL POWER TRAINING gives you enough immediate internal fuel to complete what you want. learning and practicing were both difficult. I am able to harness the same relationship with time for "normal people. so people with no previous experience or background can easily learn the practice. When I work with a new client. commodity traders. I asked one. using "a passive relationship" with their therapist. "45 seconds. it is mostly or entirely in the mind." The results each of my clients receive are very personal and specific. This action I have named "Impregnating the Universe. I have put together a technical system in a simple way. It takes people other than traders a much longer time to use their new tools. Now learning is easy and practicing is simple. When I was taught. People that are dissatisfied with the way things are and want to change things for the better. Sometimes they have done everything they can think of. Then you connect it with your wants and needs. you will learn the physical part because it is all rooted in the physical body.look at this!" I am about 95% correct and do just that. Traders use time differently. Many of my clients don't know what they are coming to me for. Nobody has said: "Wham -. affirmations & visualizations. I pick my clients very carefully. Until this approach. 1988) There are 2 parts to PERSONAL POWER TRAINING: Part one is the technique called "Chi Kung" -. in the beginning. I teach you to suck in energy and then you start moving this energy around inside your body. some have been in therapy. "what is the longest amount of time you have to make a decision?" He said. The type of clients I accept are independent business people. In other seminars. They are successful already and need some additional inspiration. many problems are very abstract or may even seem totally invisible. Because of my work with traders. and eliminating bad traits and habits." 13 . medical doctors. because I pick them right." I take the good things and magnify them and give my clients/students new tools for realizing. it means "Energy Work" and the second part is called "Harnessing Your Vehicle. but not in my work. How much time does it take you to make a decision? Commodity traders think in terms of minutes or even seconds to make a decision.translated from Chinese. psychotherapists. I would say: "I INSPIRE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT INSPIRED. and they can make it work. The first step is to recognize a bad trait or habit that doesn't work for you." The system I teach is my own creation. It's more like "Success Counseling. You then learn to propel or project this personal mixture out and into the Universe. controlling. I spend a lot of time talking back and forth. I had to go through the whole system to get the material I now teach first. Chiropractors. come to me. This work is not for wimpy people." When was the last time you had to make a decision in 10 seconds? The reason I choose traders is because I can give them a tool. No two clients gain exactly the same things. The kind of people that are referred to me are almost hand picked. That's why I get such amazing results with nearly all my clients.

I have a Chiropractor friend/student (Dr." "Meditation" has many preconceived ideas attached to it (i. by using my technique. learning should be easy and practicing should be simple. So when you practice "Chi Kung. so "normal people" could practice the technique. understand it and use it in their lives. more proficient doctor." It ordinarily takes 30-45 minutes to run through. They practice everywhere they go. On lesson 5 14 . You can do it any way you want. take a break and do more. cultivate. where are we? So how do you link meditation to self-control? I usually don't use the word "meditation. leaving your body. Cassette tapes review each lesson to make learning easier and less stressful." When you practice "Chi Kung" the way I teach it. who practices all day and uses "Chi Kung" combined with his Chiropractic technique.they do 10-15 minutes. circulate and project your energy. You can use this as a curative or a preventative measure. giving up.." When you practice. I am the survivor of my generation and have practiced at least 25. 2. because that is where our power comes from and it is also our physical "center of gravity. Many of my clients don't do the practice the way I teach it -. it is "physical practice" but the work is taking place "inside the body. What do you want from today? When I hear people responding to those 3 questions. accumulate. and the other 30% is done standing. and now. 3.

The first 3 or 4 hours of the work are spent talking. Working with the energy is an exciting and direct way of improving your physical. you suck energy in and accumulate it.

1990's version of a Taoist monastery. There are 3 kinds of religious deprogramming -. and you are learning a physical energy cultivation practice. your emotions. The way I teach it." Everybody usually fits into one of those 3 categories. Protestant stuff holds you back. but with PERSONAL POWER TRAINING. but for the first years of my manhood. It's called "Hands on. Our energy communicates many things to us. you create your own support system . The Jewish stuff however. and many other things). (i.without needing any backup from other people." What happens there happens because we spent 3-4 hours to change and define what we want to happen. I gave up wanting to be a Chiropractor to do this! Are you saying you will dispel all? No. Because these things happen in the subconscious and unconscious and mind. like "The Protestant Work Ethic.you have Catholic. but a very large percentage of it. A: I was one of the few people in my school who learned material. you will get a lot more. Most people don't have a support system that feeds them. Transfer of Power. Using PERSONAL POWER TRAINING.l4 years training. doesn't hold you back. In one workshop. You put it all together into what is called "The Daily Practice Routine. a lot of abandonment issues came to the surface.there exists a self-correcting lesson. and even your spirit. your relationship with emotional and physical pain. Protestant and Jewish. This is the streamlined. One child was put up for adoption 28 years ago and was still carrying around the pain of this experience.

You will have a self-contained unit after completing PERSONAL POWER TRAINING. The real benefit of participating in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING you get a quick fix and then get to support it when you practice "Chi Kung" for the rest of your life. your belief systems.. He set me up in a positive way. you will see similarities in everybody and the whole group is realizing many important things. Transfer of Power" takes place. you can learn this system much quicker. changes in your relationship to money. planned into the format. because of the changes each person goes through. 15 . I am sure you have done other workshops." Most men come to me because they don't have a real male role model. you reinforce the newly chosen traits or characteristics. there are emotional and/or spiritual releases. he spent much time with me and we spent time talking. Transfer of Power." Protestant stuff deals more with money and deserving issues. What happens. is a unique relationship with the technique and I help you let all kinds of things out when I do my "hands on" stuff -. Back to the "Hands on." We are still holding something our parents dumped upon us. The same kinds of things always come up. Jewish stuff uses "Guilt. every time you practice. parental deprogramming." but not in a religious way. death issues came up and in a more recent workshop. How do you relieve "Spiritual Pain?" It has been described as being "Born Again. Question: You mentioned you have several years training --. My father died when I was l6. and all kinds of things are transformed. "The Gift" you will receive from me. but makes you feel bad. This is very exciting. Catholic is dealing with "Denial.e.

Question: Who was your teacher? A: My Tai Chi master was Master Waysun Liao, and my primary Tai Chi instructor was Mike, one of his top students. This is a sucking, manifesting, attracting, becoming an energy magnet, kind of technique. My clients are not concerned with stress. If you are doing what you are supposed to do, you should not be concerned with stress because it is automatically reduced. Stress becomes a problem when what you're doing is not right for you. Question: What has it done for you? A: I have taken this material miles ahead and you can take advantage of my 25,000 hours of practice, when you start. If I were a Chiropractor, I would have post-doctorate degrees in orthopedics, radiology, etc. So I decided to take this material, "Chi Kung," and incorporate affirmation and visualization techniques into it. When you learn it, it is as if you have spent years doing it already. Have you ever been around someone that was able to pass this kind of excitement or "Energy for Life" along to you? In a recent workshop in Portland, Oregon -- to give you two specifics examples: There was a woman who had just had a miscarriage; she wasn't in touch with this trauma, so when we did the "Hands on, Transfer of Power," she completed the birthing cycle in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING and we let her sleep for many hours. I called her in the morning of the second day and she was doing great. Prior to completing Day One, she was depressed and drained; she got re-inspired prior to Day Two. The second example is about an American Army captain in Vietnam who lost some fellow soldiers in l967, and for the first time in 20 years, he told his story. So I did the "Hands on, Transfer of Power" with him and he let out energy that had been "blocked up" in his body for 20 years and now he is very happy and his life works much better. One common thing I've found has been that most people are unhappy, and when we investigate why, they don't have any real reasons to feel that way. They are unhappy because it is convenient -- so understand that have a choice. For this I have created "The Task/Reward Ratio." Here's how it works. You pick something you are already doing, you want to keep it simple. I use a lot of "The KISS Principle" (Keep It Simple Stupid) in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING. You associate your task with whatever the reward is for yourself. One of my traders made a lot of money last year, but when we first started working together, he was unhappy. Why was he unhappy? He had no "real" reason.... so I told him to pick a task -- He did, "drinking a cup of decaf coffee the next morning" and then he became happy; his happiness lasted a long time. It is easier for you to get rid of your unuseful traits when you are conscious of them, then when you are unconscious. I had another private client. His thing was, he felt confused. When someone is confused, I call that "The Comfort of Confusion." Many of us act confused because it is easier then doing what we know we are supposed to. What I do in "the work" is work; I let each client know what their act is, what they are presenting to the world, and when they do, that they are unable to get anything done. When you realize that is what you are doing, it is appealing to create action and next time the confusion (comes in, you can do something about it. I have another client who is a trader - "the Reward" was to be revitalized - "the Task" was to wash his hands and face. When he had completed his task, he was revitalized.

What happened with him is he had been a trader 5 or 6 years. When he would execute a trade, he suddenly became terrified and would act as if he didn't know what he was doing. Recently, he now trades in the pit - every time he walked into "The Merc," he would experience TERROR. So when I did the "Hands on, Transfer of Power" with him, I went in and took that terror out. Remember, this is "Energy Work" and I can encapsulate an energy problem and extract it intact. His was the hardest on me. His wasn't maintained in anger, mental or emotional, - it was in his energy. I sucked it out and his eyes became alive again. So a lot of things happen in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING WEEKEND WORKSHOPS and/or private lessons. Depending on your personality and personal needs, the weekend format might be good to do, depending on what you want to get out of it, or private instruction. A form called "The Personality Profile II saves us about 45 minutes and will give you a clearer idea of how precise our work together is. I ask the same questions to each person, because I have found these tools work consistently. What happens when you work with The Personality Profile II is, you find out that the things you "LOVE" and "HATE" are related to each other. You can hate anything and some people have strong reactions to the word "HATE." Me? The "loves" come out in anything - food, sex, feeling whole, completing tasks, having self-esteem, doing a great job, feeling fulfilled, feeling selfcontained, etc. Some people put down that they "hate" riding on the El or starvation in Ethiopia. There is a right side and a left side. Right side: world issues; left side - feeling complete, etc. My work is concerned with left side -- your personal stuff. I believe that if you can't help yourself, you can't do anything for somebody else, anyway. Look at my logo... The technique teaches you how to suck in energy. I am concerned with teaching you how to become "An Energy Magnet" and giving your body the ability to attract, maintain and store its own energy. What you will learn from me is how to cultivate the energy you have already and how to get more.

Releasing the Tiger Within You Charisma: could be natural or trained. When you practice this system, it will make a big difference. In other seminars, you usually forget what you got or who the trainer was. In PERSONAL POWER TRAINING, you will never forget what you got. Here, if you practice the technique, you will have more energy than you know what to do with. What you will have are tools that help you save a lot of time and wasted energy and feel as if you are doing "the right thing." Each part of PERSONAL POWER TRAINING is geared toward developing and upgrading a person's self-esteem, self-confidence, personal power, and concentration abilities. The segment of PERSONAL POWER TRAINING that makes it unique and different from every other training in the market place is that in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING a person learns internal physical energy cultivation exercises that stimulate and increase a person's sexual energy. When referring to the term "SEXUAL ENERGY," I am not referring to what you are already aware of, I am talking about a new type of energy. This energy is termed "JING" in Chinese, which means cultivated sexual energy. The purpose of PERSONAL POWER TRAINING is not to have a better, stronger sex life, although that does happen, it's about being more vital and alive. The "sex drive" has been shown to be one of the strongest motivating forces available to us as human beings. The sex drive ranks with such forces as the survival instinct, the fear of loss, and the fear of death. Rather than concentrate on the negative aspects of motivation, let us create a mechanism to use for our own empowerment. PERSONAL POWER TRAINING contains techniques that will enable a person to create a response of the survival instinct in non-survival issues. Then a person can and does become much more in control of his or her own internal and external environments. The social implications of PERSONAL POWER TRAINING are far reaching. When a person utilizes these concepts on a daily basis, every daily decision becomes much less threatening. Making small decisions in a new and refreshing way is how to practice and get in shape for when it is necessary to make big decisions. The application of this basic principle leads to what is uniquely referred to in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING as "Releasing the Tiger Within You." As a rule, daily stress and strain has been responsible for many of the negative traits we as humans exhibit on a daily basis. And due to the prominence of many suppressive situations in our modern lifestyle, we rarely operate from a position of strength. We usually find ourselves reacting to some external stimulation or some recurring incident from our past, which might be a recent incident, but is usually an experience from our distant past. In PERSONAL POWER TRAINING, many of these past incidents are discovered, and reactivated. Then we are capable of a complete release. This process is known as "retracing" and has been proved to be a valuable tool in erasing the harmful effects of many of these stored experiences. After a person has retraced, we see a type of cleansing that affects a person on all levels: mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. This is where "Hands on, Transfer of Power" fits in. From that point on, a person who has completed PERSONAL POWER TRAINING can view life from a new perspective, one of confidence with a higher sense of self-esteem. When you view yourself as a powerful and secure individual, the universe will show you the respect you so rightly deserve. This concept is known as "Commanding Respect vs. Demanding Respect." The internal energy cultivation exercises taught in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING have their roots in "Taoist Meditation" which is still practiced in a few monasteries in China. In ancient

times, these techniques were of great value in daily living conditions related to a threatened existence. However, in these modern times, we are not faced with the same forms of dangers as in the past. Our new dangers are disguised. In this modern lifestyle we all live in, our dangers expose themselves as daily stress and strain, such as suppressive working conditions, miscommunicated love relationships, financial risks, risks of public life such as street violence, environmental pollutants such as poor quality air and water, as well as terrible food. Expectations from parents, lovers, and peers also add to many of our lethargic personality traits and habits. When we realize more fully that many of these traits and trigger responses can be eliminated by simply exposing and willing them away in conjunction with the support techniques available in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING, can we take charge of our own fate and destiny. We can make "giant steps" towards mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual independence and selfcontainment by utilizing the techniques available in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING. What you will get from PERSONAL POWER TRAINING is the ability to tap into your "Personal Power" in a way that was unavailable to you previously. PERSONAL POWER TRAINING will prove to be one of the most positive and empowering experiences of your life.

however. horsepower. "Losers" are rarely attracted to my system. One of the reasons these people come to me is. As I've mentioned in another section the book. because of my level of expertise and willingness to give them what they both want and need. I do something that is different from everybody else. For us. 30 . and a method of igniting the energy. The word "Ki" or "Chi" has become quite generic over the last 15 years.

To develop internal energy (Chi) there are a few methods.

The first thing I teach in my Chi Kung system is "Condensing Breathing. He had 5 years of bad Chi Kung in the past and all kinds of problems.. I've combined a few things in a minor way in The Daily Practice Routine but that has nothing to do with Tai Chi." which I've explained in many other sections of the book. He only spent 2 days with me.. from what you've learned from Tai Chi? GJC: Yes. I have a lot of people fly in to do that on a regular basis. prior to his learning Chi Kung) DL: How do people find you? GJC: They find me by looking. because of my personality traits. you change as you learn it. my primary target of the population is not the martial art community. But when I run across a guy doing Tae Kwon Do or some other external art. His other teacher was very confused." "Condensing Breathing. He did the 2 Day Private Format.AN INTERVIEW WITH A NEW STUDENT (This is an interview with Darryl Lyzun who has been practicing Tai Chi for 12 years as of 1988. could you make applications to the Tai Chi movements to give your movements more power or to transfer internal energy? GJC: That's automatic. Most Tai Chi teachers have no idea of what I'm even talking about. They try. The first thing I did with him was to make him agree to forget everything he learned so I could start with a fresh slate in the training and that's exactly what I did. DL: What other applications does Chi Kung have? I mean can it be used with Tai Chi. A large part of my business is these traveling students. privately. that's truly ridiculous! You've got to be a Tai Chi Master to even get the concept of how I've done this. It's important to understand that when you learn Chi Kung from me. I've even met Karate people who think they already know what I'm teaching. I've been doing Tai Chi for a long time. You can also practice Tai Chi but you don't really mix them. DL: So. I advertise." So expanding on this principal. What I do has nothing to do with martial arts anymore. I mean. So. Because everybody thinks that they know everything. as you learn the different phases and parts of the system. People see results with me in a very. he flew in from Boston and spent 2 days with me. In the Tai Chi Community. learn it and that's it. not just somebody who knows how to kick and punch. DL: Do you get a lot of referrals from other Tai Chi people or martial artists in the community? GJC: No. but they find me. not just Chicago. who thinks he knows what I'm doing. fly in. but nationally. but they can't. They never come back. Yes. It's not like something you have to practice for years to see a result. it's a separate entity. although when I teach my Chi Kung system. you would be doing 31 . no I don't. So they really have no idea what I'm teaching. but you don't need a Tai Chi background to be successful in my Chi Kung system. Plus. how can people learn Chi Kung from you in a weekend? GJC: Well they can learn it in one weekend because I worked so hard to make it simple enough for people to understand. "gives you the ability to condense 18 inches of movement into 1 inch of space. it's Tai Chi. very short time. They have no idea what I'm doing. I am somewhat well known now. I'm around. if you're doing a "ward off form" or you're doing some other Tai Chi move. For instance with Lou Buscemi. DL: If you have Chi Kung. people don't forget me easily.

You've been working really hard to get your energy to do something. it's O. GJC: Yeah. DL: Is there any relationship between Chi Kung and Kundalini Yoga? GJC: No. There are similarities in that we're saying about energy but we're really not talking about directing energy in Kundalini. Chi Kung and Kundalini Yoga are not really related except that Kundalini was taken from Chi Kung a long time ago. it's no big deal. Convulsions. which is a common problem with Kundalini Yoga. it's just raised up only. Now if people learn Chi Kung from somebody else. DL: Because Kundalini Yoga is not a circular movement. GJC: Right. DL: Maybe this is why people have trouble with convulsions and a lot of shaking. as a negative. They never pay attention to "down" that I know of." So it's clearly different. it affects your Tai Chi in a very positive way. right. So the question is how much practice a day is required. so if you ever have shaking." whereas with Chi Kung you direct the energy with your mind or intention. Kundalini Yoga many years ago was taken from Chi Kung. I shook my brains out all the time. if they're related to people that get their technique from me. DL: How good would your Tai Chi have to be in order to transfer from one to the other? GJC: Just fundamental. in my opinion. That's different. and all that stuff that I've already explained in the book as "side effects" are supposed to be looked at.K. The difference between the circulation is. DL: O. I'm not saying you do "Condensing Breathing" when you're practicing Tai Chi. or do I advise. GJC: Right. so what. which they hardly ever do.. did not reproduce the whole system. the Indians. 32 ."Condensing Breathing" and then you practice your Tai Chi differently. GJC: Well. that's all you really have to do. Most people don't know this. DL: I remember you talking about your own experience. what are the benefits of directing it down? GJC: It maintains your stability. and the answer is. Chi Kung can actually help practitioners of other martial arts improve their skills. the "down" part in Chi Kung is that you turn the corner at the top of the head and direct the energy down again until it's made one complete cycle. It makes your Tai Chi more dense. well then there are problems. DL: What do you mean by "circulating the energy up and down"? I know how it works "up" but what is the "down" part? GJC: Right. because The Daily Practice Routine only takes approximately 45 minutes to run through. shaking. In Chi Kung you direct the energy with your mind.K. you know something about Kundalini Yoga." and you in turn also direct it "down. but if they ever happen with me. "up. in Kundalini Yoga they only concentrate on "bringing it up" or "letting it flow up. You develop a "constitution" and you are in charge or in control of your energy instead of being a victim to it. but they. DL: Right. You don't have to be advanced in either. but because you already have been practicing "Condensing Breathing" prior to this.

DL: That's interesting because I was reading something the other day from the book I was talking about. I've already explained something called "The 3 Ingredients to Change. and able. 33 . willing. I do teach "Condensing Breathing" in lesson #1 of the training. However. what it's going to look like. then they're right. if you have an end result in mind. It's not important. You don't have it. I call that "banging your head against the wall. Chi. they don't know what they're going to get. GJC: I agree. And they do it and they change their lives. Self-starters are who come to me. or change." These are Jing. They grab it and they run with it. They should stay with somebody else for the rest of their lives. I'm not going to argue with them. they're able to program what they want and quickly get it. "The 3 Precious Things" (see Chapter #1). They don't belong with me. and know that there are possibilities when I present my system to them. People that come to me are people that are ready. then creating it and following through is easy. You know. That is original Chinese." But if someone works with me." GJC: Now in the book. Read that part. And what is that? That is just a faulty perception. DL: What you're saying is "change can and should take place immediately. so of course. I need somebody who is ready to do something. GJC: That's a belief system. but the difference between being able to "zap" somebody while barely moving using Tai Chi or just learning Chi Kung is. 3 to 5 times a week would be sufficient. or that it's possible to teach them. They are going to change. DL: So what response do you have for the people that say "you really can't learn anything in two days"? GJC: Well if somebody has really got their mind set that they can't learn anything in two days. make a difference. but it's going to take a long time. they're absolutely right." is that the same as Chi Kung? GJC: No. DL: Using compressing breathing or "Condensing Breathing" in doing "the short punch. If they're positive and absolutely sure that they are incapable of learning something that is going to change their life from a very serious single long two day experience. when you learn just Chi Kung. What I'm talking about is. I've related them to how to get a result. Basically.Q: Do you have to do it every day? GJC: No. The problem that most people have is. you don't have the physical/structural relationship that you'll get from developing in Tai Chi. It's not supposed to be there. I need people with certain tools. DL: And how they get tied to the idea that something important has to take a long time. I'm not trying to change. or what it's going to do. and spirit. they're right. There are enough of them out there that I can be selective with whom I choose. they get nothing but trouble. how change happens and how a big barrier to change is people's concept of time. and Shen. If somebody is so hesitant that they just can't believe they can be helped or they can't believe they are capable of learning. They don't belong studying with me. But that's not who comes to me.

but from my understanding the Chinese or the Taoists. I believe that the generation before me. in the fact. because no one could learn it that way. strengthens your legs. Why was Chi Kung protected so long? That's the question. the dispersing and controlling of information as power. I'm there. then go into Tai Chi after you learn Chi Kung. Whereas the fact that I give out so much information makes me more powerful in the world. Some people think it’s boring but that is because they don't have the spirit of it. many hours a day. the 21st century. so in 78-82. In 82 I had the experiment where I tried to teach it for $25 a month and I got shit on. depressed. I've adapted this for the 90's. Like after 2 or 3 years. their "holding back" of information made them more powerful. also produces endorphins. eight sessions a week. I feel bad. This is different. in 4 hours. Oregon. just don't have any energy. We're talking about. Now why did I hold onto Chi Kung all that time until I finally started teaching it in 1983? Because I already knew that it made no sense to teach it in the format that I learned it. my teachers. even though it's not as physically grueling as long running. Now for me Tai Chi is not boring.. Doing Chi Kung. It would take too long. DL: What do you recommend in the meantime? GJC: From a Chiropractic perspective running is not good because it stresses the major joints too much and sometimes causes injury. it's the same technique. Now for me. We're not talking about the 1400's where if you wanted to go 200 miles. later. if I want to go to Portland. Well. You finish the training which is a two day format. it can. I practiced Chi Kung on my own. but you'd have to modify it somewhat. my teachers wouldn't teach things until they had a very specific time and use and other criteria so. or to get out of certain environmental or emotional spaces the same way. How could you compare that to the Chi Kung system? GJC: O. but we'll soon be in the 1990's. Yeah.DL: O. You don't have to dress up and run in 40 below zero weather. and then you go into Tai Chi. They used the controlling of information as power.. can you achieve an aerobic effect? GJC: When you're good at it. Swimming seems to be me to be the most compatible exercise instead of Tai Chi or with Tai Chi. So. GJC: Yeah. gradual change? GJC: Right. totally taken advantage 34 .. used the output. DL: With Tai Chi. I had to have someone who had gone through the whole Tai Chi system before I could even teach them Chi Kung. As for myself. it was going to take you 3 days on a horse or 7 days walking. It is so challenging that it's not boring. DL: You're not saying that it can take the place of some exercise. That was 1978 or 79. If that's what you want. So you can use Chi Kung as a mood elevator. Kind of achy. I learned Chi Kung in 77. weren't they great believers in change. I can't do boring things. swimming is boring. except you don't ever have to go anywhere. DL: But as far as physical benefits? GJC: It improves your posture.K. I use the dispersing of information as power. but who says the applications have to remain the same? DL: I've been running every day for about 6 or 7 years now and what I notice is the days that I don't run. running stimulates the production of endorphins..K. You see it's not really set up as a physical exercise program. to stabilize your personality.

. you get the transformations without having to practice. but even if you don't practice. Now if you practice. You will be different because you are in the driver's seat. I am the originator of this system. I included affirmations.of. Somebody taught me the ingredients of what I teach. don't fix it. Because as you learn and go through your transformations." This format is my creation." Then on top of all that. The unique thing about my system is. and what I call "Impregnating the Universe" to close with what is called "Layered Condensing. It was like throwing pearls before swine. you still change.. then do that.K. you go through different phases with yourself.. but nobody formatted it and said O. No one taught me how to teach this. totally disrespected. and by the time you finally do The Hands On. I use an old rule. but they don't teach "The Mind Training.. Then I teach "Inside Air" because "Inside Air" actually will be a precursor for The Micro Cosmic Orbit. GJC: Any other questions? DL: Not right now. I made it up. I had another idea. first do this. It works that easy and that simple. that simply by learning it. you put it together into what is called "The Daily Practice Routine. it is the culmination of all the different things that we've worked on and with all this time." Make sense? DL: So are you the only one who has this system? GJC: Yes. and it works. Other teachers teach movements. First teach some sort of "Condensing." then teach "Standing Meditation" because you need some sort of "physical connection" in relationship to your energy and your body. then insert "The Sitting Forms with The Mind Training" which are moving forms combining Chi circulations while physically moving." I made up the whole concept of "Layered Condensing. then do. Nobody ever teaches these. It's my system. visualizations. "If it's not broke. Last but not least. Transfer of Power ." This is mine.. it makes it easier and more powerful." Then after "The Sitting Forms with The Mind Training. let's change the format and teach it so people needed NO previous experience and that's what I now do and it worked and I haven't changed it since. 35 ." then I will teach you "The Micro Cosmic Orbit. So then in 83.

living or trying to live. This is because their balance is being upset or shaken up. the way I help these people is by teaching them my Chi Kung system. S. with their Chi Kung problems. This is understandable because they feel threatened. Most western doctors would probably tell you "it's all in your head." 36 . It is as simple as that. Walks" has never been more true. WHAT ARE "CHI KUNG VETERANS? I have met many people who have had "bad side effects" from practicing Chi Kung the way other teachers teach it. CLYMAN'S "4 UNBREAKABLE RULES" FOR SUCCESS AND RESULTS There are "4 Unbreakable Rules" that must be followed in order to obtain your desired results from this system: Rule #1 . Usually the wrong diagnosis. I bring out the best from the people I accept to work with. I share the responsibility of their results when they use the valuable principles I teach. When you begin to make changes in your life for the better.No Drinking alcohol Rule #2 . This happens more often than you might think. is how I get such amazing and consistent results with almost everybody I choose to work with. Working with me has actually "energized" or saved many troubled marriages and relationships that might not have survived without utilizing me. This is a situation that comes up with some of my clients. by choosing exactly the right people to work with. The problem nowadays is that if they went to an alternative health care professional. they would probably be diagnosed as having one of the before-mentioned conditions. I call these people "Chi Kung Veterans. Not following them leads to dispersement and scattering of your spirit and all your energies.No Smoking Marijuana Rule #4 . When they learn "The Real Thing.No Masturbating (this one counts the most) These rules must be followed." This is even worse than making the "The Missing Diagnosis. SETBACKS AND SIDE EFFECTS Setbacks and side effects are minimal to nonexistent in my clients. The saying "Results Talks. This again. I am screening and interviewing them. have tendencies to react many times in negative ways." Many times after working with one of my clients. you must be a self-starter and have the "hunger for more" regardless of your profession or station in life." their symptoms usually go away immediately. they think they are interviewing me. when I interview new prospective clients. They must be assured that "things will be alright. As I've mentioned elsewhere. Sometimes the symptoms associated with these Chi Kung problems resemble Hypoglycemia or Candita Albicans (System Yeast Fungus Infection) or Epstein-Barr Virus.No Using Drugs Rule #3 ." Many have come to me for help after many years. They don't know where they will stand with you when you're different. when in reality. Usually. the spouse decides to work with me because they realize how they can benefit greatly from the training also. In any case.WHAT YOU NEED TO WORK WITH ME I accept new students and clients who already possess certain positive qualities. the people that are suppose to love you the most. B.

In these special cases, the first thing I do, is have them "discard all their previous experience and training." When I repair "Chi Kung Veterans," first I retrain them. In almost 100% of these cases, all these "Chi Kung Veterans" needed was to learn from "a genuine expert." People fly in to work with me from all over the country for my specialty. It can usually be completed in about 2 days. My best friend and Tai Chi brother had these same symptoms in 1977 and we could not find anyone who could help him. He lived in "hell" for a long time. I did the best I could for him, but I was not an expert yet. Today everything is different. The results these "Chi Kung Veterans" get from this re-training are permanent and far-reaching. Read what Lou Buscemi wrote in his perspective in this book. He had learned from one of these so called "masters" and I fixed him in just 2 days. These problems are simple to eliminate permanently when you understand "the true nature" of the problem. ABOUT OTHER CHI KUNG BOOKS Many of my readers have read many other Chi Kung books that have already been published. Almost everybody tells me "they really didn't know what to do with those books." A common response is "I looked at it, put it away and never touched it again," or "I tried some of the techniques in the other books, but found they didn't lead anywhere." This will not be true with my book. My intention is to give you a self-contained, workable, complete system that you can use immediately to help improve your life. Some Chi Kung books on the market today, I am sure are mere translations of some other Chinese books. The important point to understand here is that if somebody is translating, they don't have to have a working knowledge or have to have mastered Chi Kung. All they really have to be able to do is be able to translate. This is the condition of the Chi Kung books in the United States. These "Chi Kung Veterans," the people with previous experience, will find great joy and appreciation in working with my system. PATIENCE IS VIRTUE... Everyone has heard this famous saying at one time or another. What most people do not understand is that patience is a virtue when it is appropriate. This means you must be doing the right thing, first, then patience is an asset. If you are doing the wrong thing, then all your patience is a liability. For instance, I recently went to a Chi Kung lecture by a very well known author and teacher. The people in his crowd were very lost and confused. They were all attracted to him, because he is also very lost and confused. By reading his books, I always had a hunch that he was only a collector or translator, but after seeing and hearing him in person, now I am sure he does not know what he is doing. If "patience" is applied to this teachers system, absolutely nothing will come from it and "patience" will be a liability. Remember, Chi Kung is to help improve your life, not take the place of it. This means "YOU" are more important than any system. This "Holier than Tao" attitude is so far in left field, you could not be any more wrong. This is the same teacher that Lou Buscemi spent 5 years studying with. What worse crime is there than wasting people's time?

HOW DOES CHI KUNG RELATE TO ZEN MEDITATION? The major difference between Chi Kung and Zen Mediation is that when you practice Zen, you do not "direct your energy" with your mind. You simply "let the energy flow" on its own. In 1979-80, my Tai Chi brother and I spent a great deal of time with 2 Korean Zen Buddhist monks. We exchanged techniques and information extensively and at the end of our relationship, we realized that we had technical skills and practices that were not related to Zen. We were actually at a higher level than our 2 monk friends. These monks respected us as "masters of our art," and this gave us a new perspective of our own abilities and knowledge. These monks were shocked when they began to understand what we were practicing. They had seen similar things done when they were in Korea, in the temple, performed only by their "high level" masters. They said nobody was ever taught how to do these techniques. These monks were in Zen for over 20 years each. We had been practicing Tai Chi and Chi Kung for only 6 or 7 years at the time. In Chi Kung, you move and direct your energy with your mind, consciously. Many people have some experience with Zen meditation. While practicing Zen, if a thought passes your mind, the idea is to let that thought go. But if you're spending 8-12 hours a day looking for "the thought" and while you're practicing your Zen meditation, your thought finally appears, it makes no sense to "let it go." I guarantee you, when you finish meditating and go back to try and recapture your thought, you will have great difficulty recovering it. I have rarely seen anybody with the ability to forget what they saw and remember it again. This is not like dreaming. Here you are purposely wiping it out. How can you expect to read what you purposely erased? Meditation has a funny problem. My advice is, when you're practicing Chi Kung and a thought, realization, project, or some other creative idea comes up, write it down. Capture it on paper, then let it go. This way, when you're done practicing, you can take your clipboard and you've retained what came up instead of just "letting it go." Millions of dollars worth of great ideas can be captured by simply writing down these "semi-objective thoughts" as they pass through your mind. In the long run, many great ideas come up in the funniest places. What funnier a place for a great idea to come up then while meditating, and while you're not looking for it? That's why Chi Kung the way I teach it, is the meditation system for this modern, fast-paced lifestyle we all have. PRESSURE FROM YOUR "LOVED ONES" The reaction of my client's spouses to the client's improved lives and changed personality traits is quite remarkable. The first and initial reaction is that they encourage them to improve, until about 2-3 weeks after they've started, then all of a sudden, they feel threatened and want them to assume their old status and position, again, so they can maintain controlling them as before. At this phase, the spouses sometimes try creating many problems in my client's lives. This phase of the cycle only lasts about 2 weeks. Finally, their relationships land on a more even keel, with balanced communication between the two. This cycle is very common when you start to go for what you want. You might "catch some flack" from the people that are suppose to love and support you. Be prepared, but don't be antagonistic. "When you stop taking shit is when it always hits the fan." The wives of many of my clients begin working with me a few months after their husbands do. This has a great stabilizing effect on their relationships. PLEASING OTHERS: THE BIG TRAP It's a big trap to try to please people, but when you have self-confidence you don't care if you please them. When you don't care if you please them, many times you will. If you try to please them, you can't do it anyway, so trying to please everyone is "a double edged sword." If you're

not happy, you can't possibly ever make anybody else happy, so you have to first do "what's right" for you and not worry about the others. HOW WE GIVE OUR POWER AWAY Most people associate "giving your power away" with women, but actually, women do it in a more traditional way, while men do it in a much more sneaky and sophisticated way. In men, these are related to "masculinity issues." Traditionally speaking, women have been trained to give their power away. Depending on their era and background, this problem may be more or less serious. Now a days, with all these emotional dysfunctional issues, this is becoming more common. Being raised in an alcoholic environment is the most obvious family situation. Child abuse in my opinion is a close and intermingling second. UNDESERVING ISSUES In rare cases, "an undeserving issue" or self-esteem problem prevents people from actually accepting what they know is good for them even while working with me. Under normal circumstances and since I choose "stable people" as clients, many problems can be alleviated or won't last as long as they could. Many people have "an undeserving issue" that gets in their way their whole lives. When it comes to accepting what is rightfully theirs, it is usually difficult to get around this, especially since most people are unconsciously holding on to these "undeserving issues." MASTURBATING AND DESERVINGNESS Masturbating reduces your ability to accept more. It reduces your self- esteem levels, your ability to deserve. That shows up as not getting something you truly deserve because you believe you don't deserve it, or being easy to please. For instance, instead of making a lot of money, you will settle for less money, less than what you're worth. The only time I really have trouble with interviewing a client, is if he masturbates more than 3 or 4 times a week. I pretty much know that I'm not going to be able to accept him as a client. He will probably say that he doesn't want to work with me and will have plenty of excuses such as, he can't afford it, it will be better for him to do it in a couple of months (a favorite among procrastinators), or his life really isn't as bad as he made it out to be when we spoke last. Because they have this problem with their ability to deserve already, they just don't work with me. And they don't know that the reason that they came to me is to eliminate this exact limitation. It's as if they're surrendering to the problem instead of overcoming it. What do you do if I tell someone "your days for masturbating are over?" They listen to me and say "Ooops, what am I going to do instead?" They would rather continue masturbating than work with me. But men that masturbate don't understand this. It's as if they fall asleep before the sun rises each day, and never get to see what a sunrise looks like. WARNING SIGNS? Other teachers stress the dangers of Chi Kung, usually more than the benefits. I stress the benefits, not the dangers. My students rarely ask or are concerned about the dangers. You see, I've found that if you keep warning or scaring people, a certain percentage will complete a selffulfilling prophecy. I don't spew warnings and my students don't worry about them. "Be a warrior or a worrier, the choice is yours." HOW I FIX THESE ENERGY PROBLEMS I help these other teachers' students when I help them balance their energy by examining what is going on inside of them. Sometimes I sit back to back with them which enables me to feel and detect what is wrong. Most of these people know how to bring on their undesirable symptoms

because the symptoms are directly related to their previous practice. I have them practice and describe what they are doing. I am amazed at the "vagueness" of most of the other teachers' details. Careful examination and consultation is the first step. Then, I go inside their energy system and reproduce it in myself. I then experience what they are experiencing. Next, I fix the circuitry in myself and finally, I fix theirs in them and teach them a new, more powerful and specific technique. These problems are usually very simple, regardless of how long they have endured or how serious the symptoms. "Retraining" usually replaces any apparent problems immediately. If you have this problem, you know exactly what I am explaining. Contact my office immediately or help. THE CHIROPRACTIC / CHI KUNG CONNECTION Quite often many of the sensations or feelings that are interpreted by some Chi Kung practitioners are misconceived as energy related problems and sensations. Many of these problems and sensations have been proven to have actually been Chiropractic problems. A simple visit to a Chiropractor's office could have alleviated many of these so called energy problems. Many of these problems are not energy problems at all but are simple joint or boneout-of-place problems. Due to their naivety or ignorance in some cases, some people that have these feelings have interpreted them to be these huge energy-related problems. I can recall having back pain, literally thousands of times as a Tai Chi student. The difficulty I had was I did not understand what and how Chiropractic worked. I put up with all kinds of pain that I probably never had to if I would have only gone to see a Chiropractor. These aches and pains were probably simple mechanical dysfunctions and irregularities, but in those days, who knew? CHI SENSATIONS COULD BE STRUCTURALLY EXPLAINED The sensations could be tingling in the face, shoulder pain, spinal pain, hip discomfort. Sometimes people that have upper thoracic problems actually think it their chi. It could be and yet, if they were to practice Chi Kung and had the availability of Chiropractic treatment, it would make their practice of Chi Kung that much easier. Even when I asked my teachers, do you think they had enough insight to refer me to a Chiropractor? No way. This ignorance feeds the mystique associated with Chi Kung and Tai Chi. I am telling you, "if you hurt, don't just put up with it, put a Chinese liniment on it and if it doesn't get better in 1 week, go to a Chiropractor." ENERGY: THE COMMODITY The long term goal in Chi Kung is to accumulate, cultivate, circulate and direct energy with our mind, in that specific order. Energy cultivation starts scattered, with no particular pattern or apparent origin. The first step in achieving our goal and developing a relationship with our own energy is to first distinguish the boundaries of our physical bodies. This is the easiest part. Regarding energy and Chi Kung as taught in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING, the first step is to organize the energy that is scattered within the confines of the physical body. The next step in this system after organizing is collecting and preventing unnecessary energy leakages still remaining inside the physical body. A further step in this system is called adding to our energy accumulation.

3). Technique #2 . The importance of this step is to connect or link our energy with the identification of our own physical body. Tan Tien is also related to your animal instincts such as sex. You want to develop a self-generating system. is the part of our practice where the energy we have already accumulated and identified is circulated throughout our central nervous system. the energy inside the confines of the physical body must be directed with the mind. 3.

Condensing Torso Circulation The Macro Cosmic Circulation Projecting We have dealt so far with our own individual energy. This is why when you practice Condensing Breathing. The next step is connecting our newly accumulated energy to the body through repetition of very specific movements. intentionally.

So imagine you are heating or boiling water. projected that energy in gross movement directions. This particular part of the system can be performed only after steps one through three have been performed successfully. we have connected our stored energy to the identification of our physical body through various pathways and movements and 4).

that is not being disputed here. while on the exhale." In my system. there has probably been no true relationship between the two." This name is not to be construed to have some mystical or esoteric meaning. "The Daily Practice Routine" contains Condensing Breathing. and The Micro Cosmic Orbit. "6 Forms and 7 Circulations" is a primary part of the Chi Kung practice and the effects from this will help you to embody and link your internal energy to your physical body. the physical movements are secondary and not important. The Macro Cosmic Circulations. in every technique you practice. traditional Chi Kung system. New students should not assume the attitude that they are doing them wrong. The movements should flow in and out of each other. this is a piece known as "6 Forms and 7 Circulations. towards the center of your body. when practicing "Sitting Forms with the Mind Training. because that draws your energy in. your mind should remain in Tan Tien unless you are told otherwise. All of these should be important technical concepts in any real. This part of the training appears to be quite complicated to the novice but it is not.Sitting Forms with the Mind Training This section of your practice has been neglected by everybody I have ever seen writing or lecturing. Don't forget. There is no time frame for performing this section of your practice." you can use the image of gathering on the inhale and expelling on the exhale like a volcano. On the inhale the movement expands. My contention is. The other segments of your practice have different functions. Don't forget movements don't matter--The Mind Training is more important THE NATURE OF THE MOVES The end of one move is the beginning of the next." the primary concentration and importance should be on the "Chi Circulations. we do exist in our physical bodies. the movement contracts and the energy expands and is projected out. THE DAILY PRACTICE ROUTINE I have designed "The Daily Practice Routine" to fulfill certain requirements to all students and practitioners." These openings will be explained in the technical chapter in more detail with each movement. individually. The details are visible and physical. "The Sitting Forms with The Mind Training" are done in the sitting position with the body repeating simple movements and the emphasis is on "drawing energy in through the open doors and expelling energy out through other open doors. Prior to this. They can be done for l0 seconds each or 30 minutes each. Inside Air (prenatal breathing). 42 . There should be no visible gaps or "jerky" changes.

Those will be dealt with later. When practicing "Sitting Forms with the Mind Training.

esteem deficiency levels. So to try and talk in global issues or in response to problems on a large scale in reaction to the question "what do you want?" makes no sense whatsoever. your levels of self-deservingness and self-esteem will reflect your comfort in asking for what you might truly deserve. and they sit down and start talking. including yourself. Right now. ask yourself the question and make a list. 43 . selfdiscipline. It is not uncommon to be extremely uncomfortable when confronted with this question. I have to go through a "mind shift" with my prospective clients before we can even have this conversation to start with. are totally confused in knowing how to respond because of the undeserving issue that they have. my work does not deal with any of these issues. The amount of your discomfort is reflective and indicative of your self. they don't know that they can have things and personal improvements. The feeling is of pure impotence. What happens is. they want to get rid of the threat of nuclear destruction. they don't exactly know what to say or how to respond to this question. and self-esteem. you can't help anybody anyway. not most. When they first come in the door. Their answer reflects their level of self-deservingness. Remember. they want to eliminate poverty. What do you want to get from working with me? Many people.DEFINING THE ISSUES FOCUS AND APPLICATIONS This section is called "Drawing the Line" or on which side of the line are we working? This question comes up in my initial interviews and consultations with many of my perspective clients. and I ask them what do they want. This is more common than you might think. A lot of my prospective clients respond by saying they want to end world hunger." So if world issues are labeled "the left side" than I do all my work on "the right side. and confidence." Some of "the right side issues" are developing self-confidence in the individual person. I'll ask the question. For explanation purposes. it shows up that most people feel that they really don't deserve anything. self-esteem. So when I ask them "what do you want?" they don't have anything to say. we will categorize these previously mentioned issues "the left side of the line. "what do I want to get from reading this book?" Don't forget to gauge your discomfort levels. and many other global problems. If you have these specific problems or if your levels of these important aspects are low. As far as I'm concerned. So what we do in the initial consultation is we outline.

as an afterthought. My Tai Chi teacher tried to "get rid of me" numerous times to avoid teaching Chi Kung to me. The way I teach Chi Kung. needless to say. I did it right the first time. Remember. Repetition is a very important part of learning. That is exactly how I learned Chi Kung. I had to create my own way of teaching what I had considered "the most important material in the system. The most important feature here is I have formatted this material. By learning Chi Kung the way I teach it in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING. I had spent so much time practicing. I didn't even know Chi Kung existed but knew I wasn't "finished" with him. I was taught Chi Kung almost as a second thought and an extension of my Tai Chi practice. Don't forget the way to learn the system is to go through lessons 1-4 and then learn "The Daily Practice Routine" which has a self-correcting function for reviewing and reformatting everything you have learned up to that point. 44 . and apply it to your lives. The major hurdle was making it through "the system" before you could even qualify to learn Chi Kung. So taking that fact into consideration. "The Mother System" was set up to not teach the masses. and create a new system that would be the way I would have wanted to retrain myself. That's where the name of the book comes from. The success rate of ratio of my Tai Chi students that made it to Chi Kung was near to 1%. if I had had the opportunity. by completing the system of Tai Chi Temple Style. I have not changed my original system or method of teaching Chi Kung since 1983. Chi Kung the way I teach it in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING is actually much larger than the actual technique I was taught. What I teach is technically what I was taught. The applications are much largerin relationship to living. PERSONAL POWER TRAINING. I have repeated my self frequently in explaining some of the more important things and details relating to Chi Kung. I haven't watered it down. THE WHOLE IS EQUAL TO MORE THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS It only takes 3 or 4 sessions of working with me before you can actually begin seeing this practice as a system or an "interrelated web. you can learn to utilize these valuable techniques and apply them to your daily life. but the way I teach it and the applications are totally different. can actually learn it. is not a very efficient way to teach the masses. so you." I decided it was more practical to teach these important techniques in the beginning. If you are going to spend a few months learning Chi Kung from me. I decided to reformat what I was taught in 1983. easily. This is the most "streamlined" version of Chi Kung I know about. and not at the end. In fact.ABOUT THE FORMAT In 1983 I decided there had to be a more efficient way of teaching Chi Kung because only the most determined of my Tai Chi students ever got to even hear about it. I actually have refined it. I was persistent. absorb it. but rather to produce a few extremely proficient Tai Chi career professionals. In order to help more people and not make the requirements for acceptance so tremendous. you are going to learn much more in a shorter time then I learned. This material has saved my life and I am sure that many thousands of people will help save themselves through this practice also. This. that when I finally decided to restructure the system and create my new way of teaching." where each technique is related to the total system. ENERGY FOR LIFE. my students or readers.

each person's list is important usually to that person only and is not important to anyone else. You must distinguish where your physical body is in relationship to your external environment.Learning the system can be compared to learning about a car. You have tires. Remember. The Condensing principle Micro Cosmic circulation Macro Cosmic circulation Projecting Everything I teach in the system boils down into 4 basic principles. then I put the parts together for you in what's called "The Daily Practice Routine. The technical system I teach in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING is exactly the same for everyone I teach it to. don't fix it. You can't learn "The 4 Basic Principles" first. 4. is you just drive the car. It's a very personalized system. You must learn the 30 or 40 individual techniques so you can have a prospective for seeing the interrelationships among these various techniques. I'm the mechanic. a steering wheel." All you do is drive the car. You don't have to be a designer. First I give you all the parts. This basic principle sheet will categorize most of the techniques. That's why many people invade another person's "personal space" without recognizing the other person's boundaries. For instance." While learning this system. 45 . Since 1983 I have not deviated from my original outline. WARNING: Do not try to make sense out of this until you have a greater overview of the system. You will end up grouping all these diverse techniques into 4 basic categories. You don't have to be a mechanic. And a practical common sense rule is "If it's not broke. I'm the designer. 2." THE 4 BASIC PRINCIPLES Many of the details you learn in the beginning of PERSONAL POWER TRAINING. I'm even the maintenance man. I got it "right" the first time. All the techniques fall into one primary category. you will later be advised to discontinue and discard. I put the whole thing together so the end result of learning my system. In 1983 I decided I really wanted to teach people a way of improving their lives without requiring them to first complete the Tai Chi system. By learning the system this way. When most people teach Chi Kung they teach it fragmented with no continuity. I give you a whole car. You don't have to be the maintenance man. These are the 4 basic categories: 1. the way I teach Chi Kung utilizes a principle called "stacking details. I have revolutionized Chi Kung because of this presentation. But primarily one. What I do that no other Chi Kung teachers do which is. It might be a member of secondary categories. and an exhaust system. you get to apply each part of the technique to yourself in your own unique way. you will learn 30 or 40 different tools and techniques. I got it right the first time when I organized it and I just keep teaching the same way. PERSONALIZATION IS THE KEY Practicing Chi Kung is in and of itself a system separate from the benefits that come from doing it. 3. I never alter it.

This practice is not "scattering" whatsoever. A common complaint that I hear from other people that have read other Chi Kung books already on the market. Start with Condensing Breathing (the Stickman). the reader. dispersing. The Micro Cosmic Orbit. and Tai Chi Stance Meditation. and I think of "meditation" are probably not the same. Do another 10 minutes of these. All the arrows are pointing and focusing inward. Inward & Outward Meditation. You can break it up. The antidote for this problem is what I call "Developing Personal Space. practice. I always tell my clients that no experience is better than bad experience. it all adds up and that's what everybody else does. toward the center and the center is YOU. YOU ARE THE CENTER OF UNIVERSE Chi Kung helps you become present in your body by raising your level of physical presence and awareness to the point that you're not concerned about when you're going to meditate. or perhaps even leaving your body. this is what you should do. it's as if you are meditating 24 hours a day. What you. Just look at my logo. I call this invasion by another person." MEDITATION IS NOT WHAT YOU THINK I have stated this previously. Upward & Downward Meditation. then you go to work and start with Inside Air. 5 minutes there. That is not what Chi Kung Meditation is about at all. when I explain Chi Kung." It's especially easy to do this if you can close your office door and create some personal privacy. My book will instruct you in what and how to practice exactly. Understand that you are going to have to steal some time during your day. that's fine. is that they don't know what to do with the material. Most people think of "meditation" as some sort of scattering. That's why I tell people "you can practice my system all day long. I don't like using the word "meditation" because many people have preconceived ideas about what "meditation" is.Many people have trouble setting limits for themselves and respecting others. Because you have a heightened awareness and physical presence. 5 minutes here. 46 . you can save The Sitting Forms with The Mind Training for when you get home. If you only have 15 minutes to practice and you want to use your time most efficiently.

That's why many of my clients change their professions. Most people don't make decisions concerning what they want. but much easier than without my help. This is called "Restructuring and Rebuilding.CHANGING YOUR WORLD When you practice Chi Kung. but they know deep down inside that they are miserable and in trouble. etc. being more motivated. When these successful people come to work with me. After you've created the lists and decided "what you don't want to do." you will have some ideas of what you do want. Restructuring and Rebuilding A process I call "Restructuring and Rebuilding" is when I work with clients to help them figure out what they're supposed to do with their lives. "do not want to do" can be applied to relationship." You just won't be the same. Many successful people appear to have it together when in reality. This is equivalent to eating out of garbage cans. 47 . their business. so what do they get? Whatever falls in their path. I also suggest that you make a list of aspects that you want if you're concerned about having "the right relation-ship. or any other aspect of your daily life." What they're supposed to do in their marriage. That's why relationships and marriages change. Misery and Trouble – A Way of Life As I have said before." Now. or how the different levels of self-esteem.CHAPTER 1B . These kinds of changes are what practicing Chi Kung with me is all about. self-confidence and self-discipline fit into the pattern that they've been living and how they want to change it. Whatever and however you decide you want to be. they can under-stand the "true nature of success" and can literally multiply their successes. boyfriend." whether it's "little perfect." Outline exactly the traits that you want in your mate. it takes you from being "ordinary" to becoming "other than ordinary. more solid. not effortlessly. You wouldn't let the waitress make your decisions for what to eat. It could show up in almost any combination. When you start to practice Chi Kung." "things you do want to do" will be more in the light. The first list should be "things that you do not want to do. they've just been "lucky" or they really have no reason how they got to where they are. whether it's "the right thing" or whether it's just something. profession.. That's why if you decide you want to move to a different city. then why let fate make even more important decisions for you. how they're supposed to treat themselves. By the time you finish "your disqualification list. Whether it's "big perfect. Sorry Charlie. spouse. you just make the decision and do it. You will have many ideas. many people come to me who look like their lives are working." Reorganizing Your Life You start by making lists of various things. The level of misery and trouble they exist in depends on how carelessly they have structured their lives.. This is not the most predictable way to live your life. or having the waitress in the restaurant bring you what she decided to bring you. you begin to make decisions.

they're not going to say "be quiet" and you'll do it. etc. I made a decision many years ago that I was going to do so much in this life time. an important part to understand is that you probably won't get everything on your list. that I would not have to come back again. Responding in your sessions with me is not really a live situation. whether privately or in a group.000 per second and you vibrate at 200 vibrations per second. at work. The reason I disagree with this is. When this is being done. Now. my vibration is what changes you. It is my spirit helping your spirit." I disagree with this. Your Soul and You There are certain phases that the soul goes through. So. Life as an Experiment What happens when people learn this system is that they use their current environment as an experiment so that when they go to a new environment. So can you. This is contrary to what some organized religions teach and might be similar to some non-traditional ones. all the time. I call this "who do you want to be when you grow up?" I think it takes place around 18-21 years of age. Many people think. 48 . that's what helps to create your desired changes." Most people never have. The way I work with people is by causing them irritation on purpose and out of that irritation comes a reaction and a response mechanism that actually gives you the ability to respond in a live situation. It's like a spiritual transfusion. they already carry their new traits with them. because some of my clients don't practice faithfully. to be out of control. Choosing Your New Traits Carefully I discovered in myself and while working with my clients. let alone their own fate and destiny. "what traits do you want to represent you. my velocity increases yours automatically. I'll tell you to be quiet and you'll be quiet. in a relationship. you get to exercise and learn to use the tools that are necessary to "create your world the way you want it. I feel that if you have "strong WILL." I have met a few people in the last 20 years that have experienced things like this and they had been thought to be crazy. I am not concerned with finding agreement. because if I want you to be quiet. But I find a lot of people that skipped this step in their maturation cycle. that most people never made any decisions about who and how they wanted to be. The true questions are. If I can help 1. They never did this.girlfriend.000 people in "a big way. If I vibrate at 1. they in fact will get "the perfect mate." you can control your own fate and destiny. or pick 3 things that are important to you. This is referring back to what my athlete friend told me. not your personal practice. So if you just sit in the presence of this vibration and argue with me for an hour a week. as opposed to trying to work them out everywhere they go. you work them out now.000 other people that I will probably never get a chance to meet. and as a couple. and they're yours next time around. But if you're responding out in the world. not Chi Kung. However. how can you expect to get anything better than yourself? The limitations that you'll get in your partner can be based in your own personal limitations. to be having psychic experiences. but rarely does anybody follow through on those ideas." then those people will effect possibly 10. We are Like Tuning Forks When you are learning from me. if you are not the best you can be. Most people can't control their own minds. but if you get 70% you'll be happily satisfied. in working with me. Using Chi Kung helps you "follow through" with what you know you're supposed to do. or anywhere else. Many people have an idea of how to act. what's important to you.

but we'll say health problems. I am saying "the spirit is me. When I say "humanity. The body dies and the spirit takes on a new body. and it worked nevertheless. in the New Age Movement. The traditional western doctors in Arizona had given up on this man and I was hired over the telephone and I went to "fix him. That's the important underlying factor. Gary Clyman. This experience is labeled in the book. where do I go from here with this? Well that's pretty much up to you. In the old days (pre-1985). one person at a time. using them for the betterment of humanity. I was able to help joints work that have been turned off through stroke or turned off through "willed disabilities. Most people don't even know what they're coming to me for in the beginning of our relationship. The original dramatization of this principle I saw many years ago in "The Reincarnation of Peter Proud. I won't say diseases. However. to help them be healthy. The old spirit that lived in me. or conditions.. works through me. when these experiences happen to and around me." I will explain what I mean. what and how can you benefit from this "intuitive truth" that works through me? Remember. "medicine man meets medicine man" and is true. to give you service." I mean my clients. it's not really esoteric. It has recently happened to me again. He had been paralyzed for over a month due to a stroke and in 2-1/2 weeks. That is why some of my work has changed so drastically in such a short period of time. do some New Age "spirit" work. Many people that read this and understand what I'm talking about will see the importance and how they can use these abilities in their own lives. I'm not saying I channel like other people with lesser constitutions. happy. The spirit goes through individual transformations and changes. I understand them and I can assimilate these experiences and put them to work.. using a cane. prosperous and make a difference in their lives." lives in me." They hired a Jew doing Chinese medicine on an Apache medicine man. or what happens more frequently is. I was using it to help people with very serious." This relates to the old Apache medicine man I treated in 1979. if you can understand the strangeness of this whole situation." which seemed to be a movie that a lot of people went to see. So. That is another reason why I can help people in such a short period of time. has reached its expiration date and a new spirit moves in or takes over. I'm not saying a spirit entered me and talks through me which is so common nowadays. to help people around me that are attracted to this. But now in the 1990's.because of my constitution derived and developed from my Tai Chi and Chi Kung practice. I was able to help people walk that hadn't been able to walk for many years. They just have a feeling and experience a bonding that I can help them. a lot of talk about this process has been dramatized... I worked with him for 2-1/2 weeks. just as a movie. They don't really know how or why. In modern times. where another spirit "comes in and talks through them. my expressions remain the 49 . the body remains alive and the spirit changes. I have experienced what I call "multiple deaths. This has happened to me numerous times in the last 20 years. my body remains the same. it's more like New Age. not up to me. but free. when the channeling takes place inside of me. It actually happens two different ways. Reincarnation…Who Knows? There exists in some ancient writings a very strange process. I am here for you. It takes a few weeks of working with me before this intention is discovered and refined. I had him walking on his own. Now a days a lot of people do "channeling" and do some sort of." Because of my physical and spiritual constitution. This is my opinion. when this healing ability that came through me.

Changing the World begins with changing individuals. Physical violence should not be accepted under any circumstances from another person regardless of who they are. This is an important step in my work. You are willing to let other people invade your personal space and abuse you to an excessive and unreasonable degree. regardless of what the rest of your environment including your parents. Many people put the same importance on their possessions as they do their own physical bodies. but do not express the obvious external symptoms that are most commonly found with this condition. does not come from God like many West Coast people would like to believe. but it actually comes from an innate knowledge that I have developed from understanding myself. sensitivity.

Hidden Eating Disorders Bulimia without the symptoms of "The Binge/Purge Mechanism" is more widespread than most people would believe. have Bulimia or a very similar eating disorder. He would have never recognized and identified himself as a Bulimic. They believe their bodies are equal to everything else in their environment. and awareness. one at a time. I have recently worked with a client who has had an eating disorder his whole life. my personality remains the same. 50 . An example: you are "here" (defined). and no more important. That's a very self-centered way of being. People from all over the country and soon from all over the world are attracted to this reservoir of spiritual understanding. Many people. This problem is more common than one might think on the surface. all because of the stability I've developed over the last 15 years in practicing Tai Chi. This is also related to the problem with setting personal boundaries. The Worst Signs of Low Self-Esteem Levels To extend a self-esteem problem in men that produces a man willing to accept being beaten by a women is pathetic. This type of "invasion of privacy" is totally out of the question and is very wide spread. I understand things about being a human that most people never pay attention to. Advice through different mediums is available to people who realize the importance of having the right information and doing "the right thing. This is actually one of the reasons that I'm able to help people in such a quick and permanent way. Remember a lot of this work has been kept secret inside various groups." The underlying principle here is. tapped into this "secret knowledge" that has never been brought out to mainstream America. Some of these basic principles are written in very ancient Taoist texts that aren't even available in English. due to their own internal discipline or level of control. which is totally ridiculous and way off base. your friends. You do what's real for you and don't worry about the rest of the people. Creating change in the world must start with individuals. However because of my consciousness. Much of the advice that I give people does not come from Gary Clyman. your spouses. I help people do exactly what is right for them. but this is the only way that you can actually be yourself and make a difference in the world. It's their responsibility to accommodate it.same. A very common problem many people have is that they are "not here" (undefined) and everything is around them. and everything is around you. I have been able to recognize these changes in a very specific sequence. or your children think. A lot of these transformations appear to be dreams.

Different kinds of practice develop different aspects of Jing. Chi can not. That is why it is heavier and more physical. you can't feel my Chi at all. I never got a satisfactory answer. and you're not. Shen is your spirit. Chi is my own. JING. But if people have a picture of how they're supposed to be." then they have a large amount of Shen. which is level one. you feel my Jing only." Your internal energy you feel. and finally Shen which is level three and the highest of the three. Shen is last. 62 . Remember. what their life's mission is and all that. or your level of assertiveness in the world. I will give you my answer. they are actually performing it or "living it out. Chi is more of a mental energy. with a much faster vibration. and then you transmute your Chi and Jing into Shen. In the Chi Kung article in Inside Kung Fu Magazine 1987." Even when people feel tingling in their fingers or shaking in their legs. What is the sense in that? So first we develop Jing. When Chi is converted to Jing. The word "Chi" has become too generic a term." This definition comes about as close as you will probably ever get to making sense of this word.

Spiritual -. The third is -. If you set up in advance what you already want. It must already be present. THE THREE INGREDIENTS FOR CHANGE The first is -. Chi is the energy of the mind that cannot be felt or expressed to another person. you stand a much better change of getting it." Without practicing "Condensing Breathing. In my own experience. the form named "rollback" helps you create power in and for all the other forms.The Physical -. They just physically do and they're lucky if they ever get what they're looking for or want. you are only shooting in the dark." or "your ability to project is directly related to your ability to condense. Even if you have no physical evidence to prove you are right. even though it hasn't showed up yet is how you get what you want. That's Shen or Spirit. 63 . the right way. you structure the steps to achieve the end result. If you are vague or have no idea.The Mind -. This is contrary to the way most people work. faith in yourself is more than enough to see it through. Jing is cultivated sexual energy. Since then. To create anything. A more effective and efficient way of going about creating change is to first have "The Spirit. So.CHI. That is the hard way. If you know where you want to go. then the mind comes in." Knowing it will happen and seeing the end result as it has already been accomplished or already exists in the world. You must know and have faith that the picture you have created is going to happen. and Shen is spirit. This has been this way in me since I can remember having "my energy awakening" in 1977. Then after you first have "the Spirit" and "the steps to achievement" or the Chi of the mind. you'll probably get there. With the mind. Now how do you get to the end result? That is the million dollar question. This can also happen to you." there can be no explosion. most people attempt the physical aspect first. then you are trying to "bang" your way through it. then the mental. Just as in Tai Chi. not "spiritual" like some "New Age" people associate with the word "Spirit. I have never been the same as before. otherwise." SHRINK BEFORE YOU EXPLODE: AN IMPORTANT SECRET This is a very important saying: "Your ability to explode is directly related to your ability to contract." this is a demonstration of using his JING. or his cultivated sexual energy. whereas "rollback" is the only form contractive in nature.SHEN. then you incorporate the physical aspects to your change. Internal power must be stored in the body and cannot be converted when needed. and cannot detect any change in my internal energy or power reserves.When a Tai Chi Master touches someone and makes them fly into a wall with what looks like "no effort." Shen is "The Size of Your Balls in The World.JING. The second is -. If you have no idea where you want to go. if you practice the right material. and knowing that is already half the battle. You have the ability to have what you want. It is a lot easier to get to the end result when you have a clear picture of what the end result looks like. you will probably never get there. wherever "there" is. I feel the same all the time. All the other moves are expansive in nature. regardless of what it is. For all practical purposes we will call this aspect of change Chi.

then you end up with the result which is physical. That's how most people live. one or both at a time. You go with spirit. So the difference and what you learn from me is how to set it up in advance and then get it. You begin with spirit and it becomes physical. which is the stupid way of doing things. you must realize there are 3 steps in getting something to happen. the second level. These are the 3 things that go into creating any change. What we're talking about here is "Visualization of the Change. or starting a new exercise program. starting a relationship or marriage. Impregnating the Universe uses what I call "Shen" or spiritual change. I will tell you to practice. For instance. Because of the different levels of the practice itself. I have explained this in another section of my book under "The 3 Ingredients of Change. They are just physical.If you don't have vision about what you want. This principle is not only true but important in every endeavor whether it be starting a new business. Imagine how much easier your life would be if you knew what the end result of your work looked like before you even started. Then when you use the mind. you're not going to have what you want. Some think that they're going to be a little smarter and they're going to know the steps before they move. That's how most people do it who are smart. you don't try to pile everything on top of the previous details. The 3 levels are: the physical. then you figure out the steps. but squeezing the urinary and anal sphincter muscles is a very common detail that is in most of the techniques. That means you already know what the end result is going to be. you do use "the stacking method" for collecting and organizing your information. Then when the change is finally completed. the second is the mind. TAKING THE BULL BY THE HORNS What is this stuff we call ENERGY FOR LIFE? Nothing more than the ability to take life by the horns and break them off. The only details that I want you to practice. Yes. But what I'm talking about is seeing the end result in advance and then figuring out how to get there. in the spirit or mind. they just "bang" their way through it. To create the reasons why you should do something to be greater than the restrictions and reasons why you should not attempt to have life the way you want it. The problem that most people have is they don't do any preplanning anywhere. you would not do Inside Air while you're doing The Micro Cosmic Orbit. which is mind. writing a book. but you don't do everything all at the same time. losing weight. you're going through the steps that create the change. It's like smashing your head against the wall. Most people go through their entire lives physically trying to create changes. and the spirit. and the third is spiritual. 64 . to live life to the fullestextent and raise and continue to raise your natural abilities to accept more than before. A common question my client/students ask me is "Do we do all the details on all the techniques?" The answer is NO. The first level is physical. the mind. learning something new. It's as simple as that." This is an important principle so I will repeat it again. They don't even have an idea of what they are trying to do. which is stupid. This material is dedicated to the expansion of your horizons and the stretching of your own personal boundaries and limitations and beating your own personal best."

I PRACTICED WITH PASSION I used to practice Tai Chi as if I were running a marathon. you can use them to help yourself understand from where you came. Chi Kung is not physical in nature but it's not mental either. Tai Chi concentrates primarily on changing your physical structure. This is the attitude you should use when practicing Chi Kung. This was the only way I could maintain the fire inside me and the pure excitement for learning Tai Chi.Remember. the end result of learning Chi Kung as taught in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING is that you don't remember how you used to be before you changed. However. Chi Kung concentrates more on cultivating your WILL. very aggressive. Keeping the old limits and using a new way of thinking means you're still stuck. the method of learning is different than the method of practicing. improving your posture.

Training your mind is quite different than "being mental" or learning new ways to think. on the point. that's more important. Recognize and understand the difference. improving your breathing and many other physical benefits. THE IMPORTANCE OF TAKING NOTES I have only one regret from my personal training.

What you are able to do is vibrate your skeletal system. Some people can feel expanding and contracting with their mind. direct the energy with your mind. Tai Chi breathing techniques are much more general. and as you do this. "Condensing Breathing" is very important in this process. When I say mind training.

When I say "pathways. you learn these mind training exercises which are very specific and in the long run Chi Kung can help your martial art. doing a very simple movement repetitiously while the most important part is not the physical movement of the body. such as learning how to "abdominal breathe" as opposed to the way most people breathe. When you learn Chi Kung. you can feel a person putting his mind at any point in his body by expanding any specific part of their body. Yes. with the upper third or half of their lungs. but what the mind is doing? It's much more important to direct your energy with your mind while doing The Sitting Forms with The Mind Training than to be concerned primarily with physical details. Many people can develop this ability but this is an impressive yet insignificant show of a mind training application compared to the big one. Chi Kung being 80% mind training and only 20% physical.It is directing energy with your mind. or in The Sitting Forms with The Mind Training. compared to. I mean directing and moving energy to and from. An example is trying to move a golf ball with your mind. At advanced stages. I am not referring to philosophy or any specific way of thinking.

(i. domineering wives and mothers. this is more in an emotional or psychic realm. many times as these changes are going on something happens inside of their wives. Something that I say to my clients quite frequently is. They want to hold you the way you were. this usually improves their marriage.

Chi Kung can and will give you a "pleasurable body identification. This has been true with my own relationship with my fiancée. etc. relationships.

It's as if pain gives you a physical focus and without pain. So. BUT "YES" TO CHI KUNG 94 . but those who have experienced an emotional dysfunctional family will understand exactly what I'm talking about. there are certain specific similarities in many of these reasons. A more important question is "why did they do drugs?" not if they did. you can establish a better relationship with your body without any of the harmful side effects. WHY DID WE DO DRUGS? A great deal of people my age have taken drugs that grew up in the late 1960's. This is true for many of my clients. say over the last 10 years or so."

Gary Whitley 2 or 3 times or getting worked on by me. either because of getting worked on by Dr. In most cases they do not resurface. Alcohol and drugs can and do quite often mask a personality trait such as laziness. So if someone is taking drugs and they are having good or at least some physical sensations. Emotional dysfunction in families is extremely widespread. Chi Kung is "The Perfect Positive Addiction.

These negotiation skills are applied to business.e. Only lately. you are left a different person each time. back pain. From my perspective. This problem ties in with alcohol and drug abuse. The material that my fiancée is living with or the emotional incidents that have shown up have been primarily erased. only then can they discover and realize what the causes of the problems are." IDENTIFYING WITH PLEASURE INSTEAD OF PAIN Most people associate having a body or identifying with their bodies usually under painful circumstances (i. they can never tell exactly what their problems really are. as each level of emotional distress has been removed. where as by using Chi Kung. has the psychology community concentrated on this once unspoken and unrecognized problem. When a person that practices Chi Kung abstains from drugs and alcohol. each person can develop a new relationship with your own body. EMOTIONALLY DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILIES ARE VERY COMMON Coming from an emotional dysfunctional family and growing up in the 50's and the 60's is not as rare as some people might believe.

The reason they feel good when they practice is because they practice. or even a couple of times. CHOOSING BASIC PERSONAL RULES There comes a time in your life (with luck. without the harmful side effects. so you have to choose your addictions carefully and this "The Perfect Positive Addition. or what traits they want. So when I was 22. Most people that I have seen don't concentrate on what they want to be. I didn't have any positive traits. So what did I have? A lot of nothing. This is a very common problem. who they want to be. It's natural to feel as good as you can when you practice Chi Kung. It takes work to feel good. I had a friend who was Black and a musician/athlete in my band. "There's a difference between being celibate and running away from sex.. I didn't want to be a doctor." Some people don't have any. When I was about 21 or 22. I didn't want to be a dentist. That's why you should practice on a regular basis. he had kids all over the place. but they would rather avoid what they don't want to be. I didn't want to go in the army.Many people ask me the question.. but he was an excellent athlete." 95 . I've mentioned before. "Personal Rules. Chi Kung is very addictive. or wanting. in developing your personality. like an alcoholic. He said just. He had no structure in his life at all. I didn't want to do anything." because he was an expert athlete. The application of these techniques can create a feeling of aliveness for you. it would probably be morphine. He was not a real good musician. It's kind of complicated. There are no harmful side effects that are always associated with taking recreational drugs." CHI KUNG IS "THE PERFECT POSITIVE ADDICTION" The sense of wholeness that can be cultivated through the practice of Chi Kung can be the perfect antidote to a life of pain and suffering related to this problem. Chi Kung can fulfill your needs and become the perfect positive addiction. and being celibate and running towards something else. I didn't want to go to college. Practicing Chi Kung will immediately give you the power over your own mind to change your mood to a more positive one. we're talking about Personal Traits. Does that make sense to you? In the book I said. but so is feeling good. And what I didn't have was everything I didn't want. He had many girlfriends. The reason they don't feel good is because not feeling good is a natural state and the only reason they don't feel good is they now have something to compare it to. Well here we've got instead of "Personal Rules" as the topic. I can only give it to you in how it happened to me. Since so many people nowadays have addictive personalities. The feelings derived from your Chi Kung practice can be stimulated in many people in less than 30 seconds. characteristics and just ways of being. "Pick 3 things you care about and don't worry about the rest. and living in denial. when you make a decision that you want to be who you want to be instead of just sort of floating around. "How come I don't feel good when I don't practice and I feel so good when they practice?" The answer to that is very simple. If I had to compare Chi Kung to any drug." Well. but I asked him "what do I have to do?. which can happen at any time. I asked him. you have to pick traits that you want to live with and the rules you want to live by. the difference between wanting to be somebody is the exact opposite of not wanting to be like somebody.

and others are some very common examples. this effects your confidence levels in a big way. what you are facing is a daily challenge to do and be the best you possibly can. A saying I use for this is. they lose much of their instincts. the way you want to be. What I picked was sex.

You can just start with anything and as long as it's not wrong.. I didn't care how I made money (at the time I was in the optical business) and I didn't care how I had sex. it can be used to propel you forward.For lack of another approach. Client: Because I have no idea? GJC: Yes. Make a list of things you don't want to do and things you might want to do. the symptoms of this show up in many ways. and making a living." how can this child know the difference? Only by going outside of your present environment. but I did care about my martial arts and my martial arts is what pulled me out of the gutter that everybody else was in and helped me specialize and become a "specialty person. If you believe a certain way and you are living outside of those beliefs or in conflict with those beliefs. martial arts. Client: O. This sounds grim to say the least. I'll pick one. the more this supports your purpose in ideal life. The condition of most people is being "in trouble and miserable" and not knowing it. Let's first start by eliminating what you don't want. So. So. would the lion think he was a lion or a sheep? People can have the same tendencies. If you hit enough of these targets (the number is not important). and as it gets better and as you get clearer. EXPANDING YOUR CAGE When animals are born and raised in a zoo. depression.

MORE ABOUT BELIEF SYSTEMS Working within your own belief systems in relationship to the practice of Chi Kung at taught in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING is a very. then you tailor it." Gary Clyman Client Interview Client: How do you become a specialty person? GJC: This question often comes up. RECOGNIZING YOUR CAGE Most people are trapped and have no idea that they are or that the trap exists. You can't live your life by eliminating but to come up with the end result.

PERSONAL APPLICATIONS FOR STABILIZATION Chi Kung as taught in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING can be used to stabilize each practitioner on a daily basis.. Using Chi Kung can and will help you push beyond your comfort zones in many areas. not feeling well or even more serious diagnosable problems. emotional abuse. However. but by doing Chi Kung on a fairly regular basis. It induces objectivity and hope into your daily life so you can see that this won't last for long. Many of my clients have many of the worldly things that seem to make many people happy. I think that's a bunch of hogwash." GJC Many people have conversations with me during their initial consultation concerning what I call "The Commodity of Energy" or ENERGY FOR LIFE. Structure can be one of the most important ingredients in life. ENERGY FOR LIFE. practicing Chi Kung enables you to pull yourself out of your slump. These excuses are used most frequently by people who have addictive personalities or substance abuse histories. ENERGY STABILITY POSSIBLE 97 ." This is independent of your financial status and other important material things in your world. SPONTANEITY WITHIN REASON A certain amount of spontaneity is important but to be totally spontaneous is to have no control of your life and have a lot of trouble being constructive and productive. these natural limits can be expanded and eventually removed. Excuses show up as health problems. WHAT GETS IN YOUR WAY? In doing this work we call getting ENERGY FOR LIFE. spirituality. They don't have any other perspective than the one they have been exposed to. I teach you how to develop "The Commodity of Energy. "Having" is a lot more fun than "not having.understand your human possibilities. When you hit lows. personalities. Most people that work with me." If you are wealthy and have a lot of worldly goods but you don't have "wealth of self" or this commodity I call ENERGY FOR LIFE.. drug abuse. The major categories of these "inherited traits" show up in the areas of child abuse. after careful investigation into their lives. Now. discover how limited their "closed environment" really is. Animals and people that are raised in closed environments. I'm not saying that they must give up worldly things to attain happiness. this "limited exposure" leads to the reproduction of many environmental and generation-passed dysfunctions. regardless of the type. Practicing Chi Kung can solve your Personal Energy Crisis." "Having" is a lot easier on your system than "not having" and "having" is definitely better than "not having. it turns out that having these worldly things does not actually bring them happiness. Unfortunately. They show up as having circumstances in your environment crop up to prohibit you from having life the way you want it. THE ENERGY CRISIS OF THE 1990 "Our country is suffering from a National Energy Crisis. what's the point? So. people will create any excuse to prohibit themselves from having life the way they want it. and all these other aspects. and physical violence. alcoholism.

then comes level #5. psychology. Many people I have met have a need for someone to either correct their personal meditation or teach them a better way so they can practice unencumbered. The pictures in these "trips" were usually very 98 . Many people do. Chiropractic. or any other subjects. CHI KUNG HEALING: THE WHOLE PIE If there was such a thing as a Chi Kung doctor. I had been astral projecting since I can remember as a child. I used to astral project and get stuck in the walls on the way back in. a little bit here and a little bit there. Look at how our modern civilization has it stacked! THE INVISIBLE GAP . This principle. Just look at the treatment of modern chronic degenerative diseases and you will see evidence of the fragmentation. over the last 300 years teaches us that the body is separate from the mind. I would have been one a long time ago. Drugs and last but not least comes level #6. exercise. then comes level #4. Acupuncture. but there is no recognition for this particular ability. to stay stable. just the need. The use of energy in Chi Kung is like no other system. This is the unique and distinctive difference. many of these other healing systems are only fractions of what Chi Kung is and has to offer. Our Western culture. will reduce your fragmentation and pain which manifests on both the physical and mental plains. you will derive many benefits in the long run for the rest of your life. you must do your daily practice in the morning and all day long continue to practice. Chi Kung is the best because of its direct use of accumulated personalized energy. the body and the mind. Herbs. You must heal yourself before you can heal anybody else. diet and nutrition. From my perspective. then comes level #2. Nutrition. THE 6 LEVELS OF HEALING The first and highest is level #1. The Knife.One of the things you'll want to do as you begin to practice Chi Kung is to try to stabilize yourself which means to keep your energy levels above a certain point. and other modalities. you can see the results of this separation. and that's exactly what you will do. I remember soaring or flying in my dreams. "the merging" not only has been absent from our western culture. Nowadays people go around saying they are healers. this is very common phenomenon. "The storage factor" is what makes Chi Kung better than all the rest. Chi Kung as I teach it in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING is bridging the gap between body and mind which is an artificial gap in the first place. These 2 parts of our being are actually united and you do not have to treat them as separate entities. In order to do this. but has been magnified as much as possible. Chi Healing. then comes level #3. The merging of these 2 parts. inter-personal relationships. medicine. THE PROBLEMS WITH "ASTRAL PROJECTING" Many years ago I had an "out of body experience" that was the beginning of my journey on the path. This separation or gap is responsible for many modern day psychological problems. Depending on your maturity in Chi Kung and the amount of years you are able to do this. on their own.THE BODY/MIND SEPARATION This work. If you look at religion. If these other practitioners would learn Chi Kung. first it would help them perform their healing duties better and more efficiently and they would immediately see what is missing in their own system. Many new healing systems have surfaced in the last 10-15 years.

It also happens through me." MORE ABOUT KARMA Most people are very concerned about Karma who are on some sort of spiritual path or development. This does not relate to the Hands On. You really can't help or change the world until you have yours together. My mother would wake me up for school and I never wanted to wake up. even if there is no logical basis for getting it.. being "half here. but slightly larger and the old dog's spirit moved into my new dog's body. what I'm actually doing is dissolving their Karma related to that specific "original incident." I would quite often get caught in the wall of my house on my way back in. These are very important principles. "spiritual switching or transformation." the various layers that prevent them from operating at their fullest. Transfer of Power on some of my students/clients. Transfer of Power is performed. you will be different. but it doesn't come out in paintings. If someone would merely practice Chi Kung and develop the internal energy they can cultivate from their practice. they eliminate their own Karma. I help people peel off their "onion skin. I'll have this dog with me for another 15-20 years and the decision to replace her will be made at that time. I'll make a decision whether I'll want another dog for another 20 years at that point. I asked for a divorce on 6/4/90) The point is "you can really have what you want. Basically. It comes out in advice I give my clients. I believe most people live their lives this way. I always wanted to wait for my spirit to get back into my body. When I would try to "return home. HOW? The unique thing about this process is "I don't take on their Karma because they do it and I don't. And when this advice is given to individuals." I'm sure there have been artists throughout history that have experienced strange phenomenon like this." they think they're a prisoner of their Karma. When I do a Hands On. again. I had found another dog exactly like her with the same body. STRANGER THINGS HAVE HAPPENED Auto writings and auto paintings have apparently been happening to many people over the years. So. or music. Some of them have been misunderstood and thought to be "crazy. I'll have children.. By then. They think they have to "burn off their Karma. this dog has been with me over 20 years.

She had been with me since the year after I graduated High School and within 9 days. in an unbelievably short period of time. because I am getting married on June 4th. because she was only a puppy.. they can actually dissolve their Karma instead of being a prisoner of it." That's what we're talking about when I explain "The 3 Ingredients of Change" in a few different places in this book. I do remove other people's Karma.vivid. not me doing it for them. most of the time. But if the advice is followed to a great extent and the Hands On. it can help change their lives.

First Shen. with all my work in my past. Some of these "labels" have stayed with us as adults. but I believe this talking in my sleep can be considered auto-talking. I was not aware at the time as to what I was doing. and most people don't. then Chi. when you want it bad enough. How many kids were taken to psychologists and psychiatrists to find out what was wrong? How many kids where labeled "slow learners. This again is one of the things that is so unique about working with me. You being a substantial person. It is not a natural phenomenon for you to be "in your body. Now. AGAIN I've been talking in my sleep since I can remember. then comes Jing which is the physical. So one thing led to another and in 1977. and it vehicles through me. you won't get it. the mind is somewhere else." 100 ."You can have what ever you want. MORE ABOUT THE INVISIBLE GAP Unless you have some sort of technical system that enables you to make sure you are in their body." "learning disabled" or diagnosed as having "concentration problems" when in reality they are not present. they still have the same problem. it was pretty unclear at the time about what was really happening. where I used to find myself outside in the middle of the night. I had a conversation with one of my Tai Chi seniors concerning "astral projection. "separation. when kids are daydreaming in school. why should you have what you want? The important part in "Creating Your World" is called Shen. and you are lucky if "love" and "sex" are in the same person. then Jing. dressed in my Karate uniform. exercise is something separate. then comes Chi which is the energy of the mind or the steps in the process of creation. I've said this before. They heard me leaving or something. walking around outside in the snow. I don't really know. which was my ability developing its way to the conscious realm of usable tools. sex is isolated. cultivated sexual energy. There's no mystery why people are unhappy. Everything about humans is "pulled apart. I am able to auto talk to my clients." The way society has pulled everything apart. in my bare feet. Probably this sleep talking and I believe before that it was sleep walking on a grosser level." and have seen these "old labels" deeply effect confidence levels in adults. You can have your world the way you want it." I told him about my willingness to "astral project" and he advised me to "stop it immediately" and showed me how pointless it was to try to connect body mind and spirit while consciously "sabotaging my convergence. This used to happen to me on a regular basis." If you don't know what you want. the actual movement toward you want." Reflecting on this. that's Spirit. not some "airyfairy. Nobody talked about "astral projecting" when I was 6 or 7 years old. There's no mystery why they never seem to have things work out "the right way. I have seen exceptionally smart people with these "old labels. the body is somewhere else. The source is me." Why is it so surprising and curious to find out "nobody has their shit together. I had roommates that used to go out and look for me in the middle of the night." That's the nature of what's going on with humanity now a days. But now that they are not kids anymore and they are in their 30's. religion is in one place.

if ever having a necessity to go to the basement. This is usually a person with very low self-confidence levels who believes. the ego takes an "all important control" of the personality. ego relationship. SELF-RESPECT BEGINS WITH SELF 101 . I could have died and no one would have found me for at least a day or two. when the ego is just an image of self and not truly self-confidence. THE EGO VS. that if he worked with me. It's sort of like walking on the sidewalk and scaring pigeons. but every once in a while I run across one. and rarely. This experience led to me beginning my martial art path shortly thereafter. A good ego is an important and necessary attribute to have in this world. This is related to a self-confidence/arrogance vs.K. They were always crying and complaining about how I was acting and my Tai Chi practice. thus not allowing the person to change specific and important characteristics because of the relationship the ego has with these characteristics. do you get out of your car and check if the rock is alright?" This question saved me a lot of unnecessary worrying about pleasing other people. I guess it's O. he asked me this question. but every once in a while. and has been told for many years that he has "an ego problem. so I ran 8 miles. When I was coming up as a Tai Chi student." He actually said. that will be hard enough. "why should I go in the basement?" as if there was no reason to even dwell in the body. he would absolutely understand what he has been missing all these years." he described his relationship with his body as "owning or renting a house. I run across somebody who comes in and thinks the ego is bad. "when you are driving cross country and you run over a small rock. Just please yourself. many times the ego can be retained. ARROGANCE VS." By careful analysis of what the ego really has to do with the whole person. SELF-CONFIDENCE Concerning the defense mechanism of the ego to defend itself: I rarely get any clients that come to me with the traditional Zen attitude of the uselessness or the fruitlessness of the ego (fruitlessness can be changed to a different word). I believe that if someone is self-confident. This rarely comes up. I popped up and landed 6 or 7 feet away from where I was lying on the ground. What this means is. if there is in fact an ego. I told him. They were jealous because I was more serious then them and was practicing all day long. they can be interpreted as being arrogant. AN INTELLECTUAL'S VIEW OF THE BODY In having a conversation with a "pure intellectual" with practically no aspects in "the physical. I don't remember how I got up. However.So back to my original "astral projection" decision. SELF-CONFIDENCE Arrogance and self-confidence are both in the eyes of the beholder. As I said before. I was sick for two weeks after I had run that far because I hadn't run for many years. I asked my Tai Chi master what he thought the problem was. I just popped up and the next day I was determined to do something." I was as bad as anybody I have ever met. I was having trouble with many other students. very few of my clients actually have ego problems. But I made the decision to continue to live. this is a serious problem. I knew I had to get in better physical shape because I was an "obese pig. My question was do I want to live or do I want to die? I did not want to kill myself because it was too sloppy. 2 months from now. It showed. but I didn't see anything wrong with just laying there and "leaving my body" for the last time. without actually being that way.

Many children were expected to appear happy when they were not. especially since our society has put so much emphasis on "helping others" and "doing for others. I guarantee it. the way I teach it. Sometimes within hours of beginning Chi Kung with me. It's called an "Unconscious Fixed Smile. treat them differently." This second attitude does have negative connotations. you might not even be aware of it being there." some people have learned how to fake a happy face. A common result of working with me is that your life becomes a better and happier place to be. Sometimes this smile is a sign of emotional unconsciousness. That is because when you do Condensing Breathing and begin to become the center of your Universe. then the world will show you and treat you the way you deserve. In fact. This silly. Over the years of "faking happiness. If you have selfrespect. or responsive. if you have one on your face. These strange facial expressions are related to wanting to look good." MORE CONCERNING SELF-ESTEEM Some people carry an automatic smile on their face at all times. Chi Kung. This fake or fixed smile is related to covering up your misery. You will notice that many people tend to regard you in higher view. at their own expense. However. If you don't respect yourself." there can be no "true and permanent" self-improvement. the changes are very subtle and nearly hidden. but it will show up. and selfimprovement work will not give you self-respect. Self-respect will show up in your relationships at work. how can you expect anyone else to? This is a disturbing question to many people. and most importantly." The origins are many but usually stem from childhood. your marriage and relationships with friends." Carefully examine my logo." Self-respect is directly related to what I mentioned earlier as "commanding respect vs.Having self-respect is not the same as thinking and acting like "your shit don't stink. your Universe begins to respect you automatically. In the way you treat yourself applies also to making money and your attitudes about prosperity. missing personal trait. All the seminars." I mean "real change. retarded fake fixed smile shows up on people more than you would imagine. 102 . This exemplifies this "inward focus. by practicing Chi Kung you can obtain this important. TAKE OFF THAT "HAPPY FACE" This portion is concerning a very strange condition that many people carry in their face. Recognizing its presence. I am not talking about "a Band-Aid or quick fix. therapy. and it won't take very long. that is respect yourself. If you treat yourself like you are "worthless and undeserving. This will be confusing when lit first starts to show up. Many people are shocked when they first see people they were previously nervous around or even afraid of. then finding a Chiropractor who knows what to do for this is the easiest remedy after releasing the emotional blocks associated with this symptom." I believe our society has created so much "outward focus" that the "return home" has become almost impossible. I have found this fake smile on people that have severe self-esteem problems. This is primarily because of the "inward focus" derived from the practice of "Condensing Breathing. but true self-respect can be one of your most valuable assets." Without an "inward focus. whether men or women. demanding respect." how can you expect anybody else to treat you better? When your level of self-respect increases. in how you treat yourself. Many people lack this valuable ingredient to happiness. I have tracked this to childhood as an alternative to appearing severely depressed. will heal this wound. Self-respect is something that everybody needs but very few people have.

Self-esteem is the end result of our life-time punishment." This is related to "the comfort of confusion" which I have explained elsewhere in my book. Our "filter.

This "black hole" is responsible in many people for the appearance of "working on the problem. I don't have to be responsible. VISUALIZATIONS RELATING TO SELF-ESTEEM The way we speak and see ourselves makes all the difference in what kind of results we get. This means we accept their belief system. self-esteem reflects how we treat ourselves. Yes. is a combination of our experiences and conclusions we have drawn from them. Your "rule" is something you got directly from somebody else where as your "filter" is your own creation. Many people have combinations of these compulsions. They forgot they were "faking it" since it has become second nature over the years." This is not an intellectual problem. and many other common compulsions including sex and drugs. YOUR "FILTER" VS. while others remain very obscure and hidden. It's like your trying to fill the "black hole. HOW DO YOU SEE THE WORLD? One of my favorite portions of PERSONAL POWER TRAINING is helping people to define what I call their "rule" or "filter. your "rule" limits you. Our level of self-esteem is a reflection of how much punishment we accept and claim ownership to. this is responsible for many long-term ongoing problems that many people have." Self-confidence and self-esteem go hand in hand." Some of these aspects of your "rule" or "filter" can be defined very clearly." a void that can never be filled. The way I lift a person's self-esteem to a higher level is through the practice of "forgiveness." Many "smokers" and "drinkers" live with this "filter. YOUR "RULE" Your "filter" is the composite of belief systems that has been dumped on you and accepted from many sources usually beginning as an infant. Self confidence is our ability to express outwardly. Different aspects of your "rule" or "filter" fall outside of your range of communication and your range of control. If you are aware. It's an act. Some of it owners do not even realize they are not happy at all. Another commonly used "filter" is "If I'm not aware." Your "rule" is something you took directly from somebody else and you incorporated into your person so that no matter what you do or you're about to do. These "rules" and "filters" run your life. So this is related to something I call "The Comfort of Confusion. Some of these problems are: eating disorders." How sneaky and sophisticated a person is will determine the contents and appearance of there "rule" or "filter. inwardly. 103 . Keeping in mind that your "rule" or "filter" runs your life. then you have many decisions and options and possibilities." however. Look into your own life and see where your basic belief systems stem from.This is a very serious problem in the long run." The "rule" is directly dumped on us by other people. you can have high selfconfidence with low self-esteem and high self-esteem with low self-confidence. With some of these aspects there is nothing you can do. They have fooled everyone including themselves. This "Unconscious Fixed Smile" keeps many of its owners from achieving all they can and from being all they can be. adultery.

True leaders and other people that have sufficient levels of self-esteem and discipline are respected without asking. I am not enough. The problem is not theirs.

The decision to go back to the most painful experience of your life is a serious." This is a belief system that many women carry which leads to great unhappiness." The origin of this "rule" in this particular case history was given to a boy by his mother over 30 years ago. It is the same issue for men and women. scary as hell decision. This reflects your level of "hopelessness and helplessness..Examples: "I am fragile and could lose everything at any time" This is for a man or woman and is a common "rule." Part of the way of getting out of the effect of your "rule" or "filter" is by receiving a clear explanation of how it affects you. I am not enough. what matters is how much guts/internal fuel you have. being in a relationship and not having your feelings matter. These explanations do not usually come from within you and must come from an external source. This issue I call "commanding respect vs. This rule/filter is almost as prevalent with women as "I am not enough. I do not deserve enough. ABANDONMENT IS WIDE SPREAD The "abandonment issue" is reflected in many of my clients. It is our discipline problem that we accept things that are not acceptable. Question: Are you telling me that I have something to do with the way people treat me? Answer: You only get what you accept. depending on the age of the "original incident" related to your abandonment issue... The cause of this is so obvious it is simple." Get the point? This is very common (underlined). and the man is primary. lowered self-esteem and self-worth. It doesn't matter what you do. or being "shit on" on the job. Another common rule/filter for women is: "I am not pretty enough. I am enough. All the screaming in the world isn't going to change that. This belief system causes more pain and difficulty to women than any other I have found. If you are satisfied with people treating you like "dog meat. especially because you don't know what you’re going to find when you take a look. but if you have an internal conversation with yourself and decide that you are only willing to accept communication above a certain level and not lower." people will pick up on it and give you what you ask for. being abused by the people we love and supposedly love us. demanding respect. WOMEN AND SELF-CONFIDENCE Many women have been raised in this day and age to believe that they are supposed to be the support person--the secondary person. it is ours. This man is vision-impaired and was treated as a wimp throughout childhood. I am not enough.

That's how they disqualify themselves. If you're walking around sloppy with your pants falling down. and this adds to your self-esteem and selfconfidence. primarily around your waist. and these are usually fat women.DECISIONS AND SELF-CONFIDENCE One of the important things with having self-confidence is also having the balls to stand behind the decisions you make and to know that the decisions were based on all the available information you could possibly have had at the time. to bring Chi Kung to the masses. but they have this "undeserving issue" to the point of destruction. It's as simple as that. If someone is not willing to work with me then I can't help them. not your groin. This is important. People have trouble because they don't want to make decisions and always feel they don't have enough information to make an accurate one. If we don't care about our appearance. They create all kinds of reasons. I don't mean that they're not smart enough. is to postpone. "this is exactly what I'm looking for. They first say. HELP 10. The simple action of "tightening your belt" will do wonders for your self-image. So what that essentially means is they're just trapped. TEACH 100 DOCTORS. I interview many people as clients who are walking around with their pants falling down. 105 . This "undeserving issue" that women have gets in their way so they cannot change. I will help many more people than I possibly could by myself." or "I'm going to do this. to stop and just out and out cancel doing it at all. The next step is they start postponing their starting date and then the last step is because they don't know how to make decisions yes or no." The next thing you know. and the way we accept being treated. Your ability to make decisions reflects your self-confidence levels. which I hadn't completed yet. self-discipline. My decision to teach Chi Kung instead is based on my belief that if I teach 100 Chiropractors how to use Chi Kung in their practice. This does give you some sensitivity in the lower part of your body. WOMEN AND FOLLOW THROUGH Many women that I have interviewed have proven not to have what it takes to do this work.000 PEOPLE Teaching Chi Kung in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING was an important decision for me because I was planning to become a Chiropractor. They stay where they are and there's nothing I can do about it. We get treated the way we appear. and self-confidence. What kind of physical presence and awareness can this create when you're having trouble keeping your pants up? All it takes is making your belt a little tighter. That's why what I call what I do "Success and Prosperity Training." "I really want to do this. This world judges us by how we look. I made a decision a few years ago to give up a Chiropractic study and career. It has nothing to do with the actual decisions. nobody else will either. This relies on self-esteem." PERSONAL PRESENTATION & SELF-IMAGE Personal presentation is very important. unfortunately. PROBLEMS WOMEN HAVE MORE THAN MEN I believe women have more other problems that are even more serious than the lack of the sense of urgency. They have all kinds of answers why they can't do this now. please pay attention and fix this. This is why most of my clients are men. they're calling up to postpone their interview appointments.

I am talking about dealing with the ability to concentrate. the next step is extending your concentration abilities for two intervals followed by a one interval rest period. Practicing this technique I call "The Anatomy of Concentration. This is concentration at your peak."if it is easy. Many people suffer from not being able to concentrate but few realize the problem even exists. doing the right thing. and being natural. Protestant Influences Catholic Influences Jewish Influences PROTESTANT INFLUENCES: The first thing we will talk about is the "Protestant Influences" and it doesn't mean you have to be Protestant to have this. and many other variables. ABOUT CONCENTRATION Many people are under the misconception that they can concentrate for short periods of time. There are many other people who can help people by using Chiropractic. Having fun and being happy are also affected. you can even be Jewish. The truth is most people have never concentrated in their entire lives. People only operate at 20-30% of their capacity at the most. Many people spend most of their waking hours trying to not be where they are because they don't like what they are doing." will give you. it is wrong. however. A process of developing concentration that I teach my clients is to concentrate for 10 seconds and then distinctly not concentrate for 10 seconds. the necessary sensitivity to concentrate at will and to be able to distinguish the difference. There exists a methodical way of realizing and developing these concentration skills. Concentration is the ability to "be present" on command. it might shade or flavor the problem but it doesn't change the category of it.the basic rule to recognize this is -. Helping people by teaching them Chi Kung has proven to be more valuable to my students because they keep their benefits forever. work. 106 . is the opposite." This has many other implications relating to money. Protestant conditioning -. After this practice has been developed to a small extent. This method works. That means you are spending your time becoming physically present and aware. What you really are won't make that much difference. "True Concentration" resembles a clock with each minute representing an interval. 3. A short period of time might be considered from 15 minutes to an hour. My decision was right. being where you are. RELIGIOUS CONDITIONING AND DEPROGRAMMING For all practical purposes this material will be divided into three basic categories: 1.So that decision was made when I withdrew from college to do this exclusively. Realizing and developing the ability to turn it off and on gives you a handle on internal control. you can be Catholic. the practitioner. Concentration. 2. Obviously there are other factors involved: enjoying what you do. which is directly related to choosing what you decide to concentrate on.

this trait does not prevent them from getting something accomplished. This quote has affected people and successfully motivated them to sabotage their own personal success. The remedy to all negative belief systems in my work is what I call "Illogical Logic" or "The TaskReward Ratio. "Catholic Denial" shows up in many of my clients as an underlying belief that they don't deserve it. whether they are commodity traders. "Jewish Guilt" is quite different than "Catholic Denial. yet they sabotage themselves in advance. Most Jews do not suffer the same malady as their Catholic/Protestant counterparts." This single quote has caused more problems in relation to prosperity than I have seen anywhere else. is "if you make a dollar." and many variations of it. feeling good about something bad.positive action. so they are not happy.

Part of reframing is to recognize whether this particular trait is a member of a category of traits or is personal like a possession. artists. "Catholic Denial. and achieving their goals. it is done on an individual basis. after the problem has been "Reframed" or dealt with. however. When I help my clients and students deal with this particular problem. executives." This also runs deep in preventing people from accepting their God-given riches. so they don't get it and they are unhappy because they don't get it. CATHOLIC INFLUENCES: Christianity has given us many beliefs.just what I call "reframing. dissatisfied means they know they are not performing to their full potential. So one of my goals in working with my clients is to show them and dissolve these negative belief systems. the Italians perfected it. JEWISH GUILT AND CATHOLIC DENIAL Jewish people have a trait that is rarely found outside of Jews. you had to take it from someone else. many of my clients recognize it as a common problem. JEWISH INFLUENCES: Dissatisfaction is very current."The Protestant Work Ethic" and applications of it are the most prevalent problems related to this particular branch. This is very common." "The Task-Reward Ratio" helps many of my clients come to grips with many recurring responses. For example: "it is easier for the poor man to pass through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to get into Heaven. Fortunately. These responses can look like feeling bad about something good. However. it looked totally isolated." The joke "the Jews created guilt.

The reward can be being happy. about not being late any more. it helped eliminate the fears I have with encountering new relationships. not being depressed. the client deserves the associated benefit. He didn't answer them. GARY'S EVALUATION OF EVELYN'S STORY: Evelyn's story is classical. I was so miserable and every time I got around people I always felt I had to do something to keep this person in my life to make them accept me. classical abandonment. he felt bad for hours (guilt). for being l0 minutes late everywhere he went.These tasks are so simple. EVELYN'S STORY: I initially started PERSONAL POWER TRAINING because I was not accomplishing my goals. What it looked like is a terrible fear of being alone. I will now give some examples: Example 1: One of my clients is wealthy and was chronically unhappy. A week later at our 2nd consultation. upon completion. Upon investigation of his unhappiness. we. abandoned and even though I tell myself I enjoy being alone. He chose to do two push ups. She was forced to share what she had with every-body else because she had more. The ratio between the task and the reward is tremendous. it produces great results. So on my first confrontation with him. Upon the completion of his two push ups. I was able to let go of some of the ones that were not good for me. and/or having fun. my relationships were failing consistently and some-thing kept getting in the way. As I got involved with working with Gary. So. my homework assignment was to leave 15 minutes earlier than he ordinarily would to be anywhere. Through doing Chi Kung practice and the body work. I used to just hang on to them. It still affects other areas of my life. he was truly better. By picking the correct task and tying it into the reward.one cup. found that he had no reason to be unhappy so I had him pick a task that. one time. we are purposely picking a task or homework assignment that is guaranteed to succeed. I started to realize the pattern I had established and how it was effecting my body. It was a fear that if I got involved that person would leave. I feel I can go on with my life now. Everybody he worked with wanted to know what was wrong. he felt "Great. At the completion of this task or homework assignment. so I created relationships that would fail over and over again and I didn't know how to stop it from happening. would allow him to feel he deserved and earned happiness. Remember. they are guaranteed to be successful. he was arriving 5 minutes early. In the process of leaving 15 minutes early. making money. His happiness lasted for months. He felt residual guilt because he had been that way for so many years that the change was hard for him to get used to. success is assured. I am more objective and I won't die if the person leaves me. feeling successful. Example 2: I had a psychiatrist as a client one time who was chronically l0 minutes late everywhere he went. Ridiculous as this may seem. (the task) was to feel O. My friendships with other women were not satisfying. he and I.K. losing weight. She was raised by her relatives and all the rest of the children in the family. The task in this particular case was to drink a cup of decaffeinated coffee -. To make them want me and I 108 . So his homework assignment." but still was unhappy.

And the reason. if that's where my values came from. Where did all that garbage come from? The things I was accused of by my parents. You can rank them in order of what's most important. it was. specifically my father. is when people don't do what's right. I was only looking how the other people were reacting to me. I tended to indulge in things. Now it's coming up and I say "well gee. So for me. It's changed to the extent that my awareness has increased and my ability to say no to my cravings and urges to compensate has gotten better in that I feel that I can be myself. I don't have to fulfill another's needs so they will have me as a friend. How much of your improvement is personal advice vs. I know that everybody's got a set of negative and positive values. I found out that the values that we hold dear are the things that we were "accused" of violating when we were younger. my biggest value is "integrity. That kind of stuff. DOUG CARTER’S STORY On Abandonment One of the biggest problems that I think people run into is they get caught up trying to do what's right. In fact. and you can't trust people. I am looking to please Evelyn. smoking to feel I had something I could control that wouldn't leave me be alone. Also feeling like I had to fill myself up with food. I could not get past the fear of somebody leaving me or me not being enough for them to stay in a relationship with me or not being enough to do a good job. they came not from a positive perspective but a negative one. I don't want Evelyn to be hurt again and my awareness is considering me now when before I wasn't. establish a new business. You can't find anybody you can trust. I would go on drinking binges at times. I would say about 60% is gone now. in reality what was going on for me is that I was afraid that I wouldn't do what was right. It looks like I am loving myself more and putting myself before in the sense that I am not looking to please other people so much. alcohol. Other people had to make me feel loved because I lost my parents at 4 years old. you know the things that drive me crazy. what's second most important. I found out. My second biggest value (well.had to be more than just Evelyn--I had to be something else to keep that person there in my life and was not letting that person be who they are. I can be me with what I have to give and feel more confident in that. And yet. an object and what they could do for me and so far as fulfilling my needs. I didn't know how much of an impact had on me until I saw a pattern in my social life. And God! I mean some of that garbage has been with me for years. I was driving down the road the other day and one of the things that came up for me was values and where values come from." Doing what's right. or when people aren't honest. the practice? I would say 50/50. or that I wasn't trustworthy. it's not anymore) is honesty and then trust. be honest. etc. I felt other people had to make up for what was taken away from me as a child. lover or employee. I want Evelyn to be taken care of. Maybe the time has come for me and I don't know how 109 . They get caught up trying to do what they think they're supposed to do rather than what they really want to do and even though what they think what they're supposed to do is not necessarily the right thing or the best thing for the other people that are involved either and it's certainly not right for them. but treating them like a possession.

My whole life. It's like this one time when I was about 12 years old. what is really right? Who are we really and what is really important to us?" Not because somebody else told us who we were "supposed to be" but because it really is important to us.. "I don't need you. I started to cry. so I kind of halfheatedly put the thing together. "Get outta here!" And so I did.. and the porch is covered with plastic so the wind wouldn't blow through and I remember standing there. If I want it done. I mean.. GJC: Right! DC: And it was an interpretation of events that occurred when they were emotional. Kroft was my typist) GJC: So. I was only a 12 or 13 year old kid..." He said. I mean he had so much stress in his life. And so I have "owned" that as being my problem.. "I thought I told you to clean the back yard?" I said. from a moment of stress for him.not because of who I was.. Transfer of Power. I didn't want to be out there.. I don't even know what he said but this is the "original incident" that came up the last time that Gary and I did "Hands on. "what are you doing out here?" I said. what I thought his expectations were and they weren't. you've never really created who you are supposed to be? DC: No.he'd asked me to clean the back yard two or three times and you know.to do this yet.. "well." He said. Does that make sense? GJC: Yeah! CBK: Oh yeah! (Connie B. GJC: And not really what they really were either! DC: No." He said. "Bullllllshit!" And so he went out and grabbed the rake and started to clean the back yard. it was an interpretation.. "well.his own garbage. all I ever wanted to do is be a part of my dad's life. uh. but I didn't know that. So I go out to help him and I'll never forget this. my father comes along and says... I.. it wasn't even something accurate for them because they weren't always emotional. I went back on the porch. "you had your chance. "O. And.. And that was the last time. I've always been living by other people's expectations or what I thought other people's expectations were." and he said. but because of the things going on in his own life. this had to do with cleaning the back yard. I'll do it. can I put that in the book? 110 . I'm helping you clean the back yard. right there.K. no. it was cold! And so on Saturday. and we never really got along from that point on.. Until just recently and the reason was because in a moment of acute stress." GJC: With the shooting incident? DC: Pardon? GJC: With the shooting? DC: No. GJC: So. He looked at me and said. but maybe the time has come for me and a whole bunch of other people to take a look at ourselves and say. he reacted to me . looking at him through the plastic and it was all blurry and such. my dad got real upset with me and just yelled and screamed and said. you know . I did.

GJC: So this is directly related to the issue of "abandonment" with you. but the Hands On." feeling like I had never been good enough. because in order for me to talk about it and not have a big emotional reaction to it. DC: About as gone as you're gonna get. yeah it is. because I have a place for it. DC: Yeah! 111 . but we talked about that specific time period and we talked 45-50 minutes . Anyway I talked to my father and you know what happened? I told him. GJC: But you didn't get it out of your body yet. DC: No actually it came out in between.." And he said. GJC: Well he was afraid he screwed you up as a kid. about feeling like I was "abandoned. DC: Oh yeah.. What was it?" And I told him about it. GJC: So the Hands On. GJC: Can I put this in the abandonment section? DC: Sure. "yeah. I was always afraid of that. Transfer of Power in March. "you know I had all this stuff come up for me and I said logically I know that that's not true. GJC: Great. I couldn't let go of it.DC: Sure. "I've had some stuff come up for me and you know I've always been real logical. And it all started in March. when I started to resolve the process and when I was with you the last time. GJC: O. Transfer of Power? DC: Must have. logically I've got it all handled.K. The Hands On. DC: The last time." Now we never talked about that specific incident.something like that. I had already dealt with it.K. "you know. GJC: Did you get it out last time I did the Hands On. DC: And in the meantime." And he said. one of the reasons was because logically. when you were here last. it will probably help other people with this issue. GJC: O. GJC: Can you resolve it? DC: Well yeah. Transfer of Power resolved it. when you were out here is what brought it up. DC: I didn't get it out. DC: Sure put it in there. I said.. You know. Transfer of Power last time actually brought this one out. and I've had some stuff come up for me and it's emotional and I'd like to talk to you about it. but you know emotionally it's a mess. What I did already was I called him and I told him. GJC: O.K.

GJC: Well. we're gonna plow into the ground here. It doesn't make any difference whether it's food. you're the most important person in my life.. DC: Well he was right. what will happen is that they'll kickalcohol or they'll kick something else and they don't. GJC: He did. or for the first time and they start drinking coffee and stuff like that. On Co-Dependency DC: Co-dependence. We learn a lot of our co-dependency from our parents and our parents learned it from their parents and their parents learned it from their parents. etc. and it doesn't make any difference . DC: They just change it.. DC: Yeah I figure that one of the things that is gonna happen is that between you and I. sexual dependency. I'll repeat this. I mean. such is life." but it's still part of the addictive process. DC: And you know what's real interesting is that our relationship has been so much better since then. DC: Hey. next to my daughter. You know. with a lot of people... GJC: Well congratulations. which AA condones because it's a "slower death. Thank you. but thank you for your help and support. DC: Yeah. They stop drinking alcohol and so what do they do? They start smoking more. fathers don't have much to say to kids until they're about 21 anyway.it's all part of a bigger addictive process. CBK: Co-dependence? DC: Yeah. or alcohol. GJC: You're not done yet. GJC: We'll do what? DC: We're gonna plow it into the ground. GJC: They pick up something else." And what's sad is that we hardly talked from the time I was about 1 until I was about 21.. I mean. God there are cases right now where what people are dealing with is healing a family and healing 112 . we'll do stuff that nobody's ever done before. And the way this is manifested is. Since our discussion about it. "you know. Whether it's chemical dependency. well I left home. GJC: That's really exciting. or again.GJC: And he was right.. DC: It's been incredible. Not thank you for saying congratulations. or whether it's relationships. You always have been. the modern therapy of Co-dependence goes much deeper than what happened in like "Alcoholics Anonymous" and other addictive consciousness. I told him.

. I bet. you know I've gone through a lot of different things. like what "type?" DC: Yeah. God Gary it's sad. Could you. Oh my God! I gotta do this.. and we run around here and we run around there.." That's where it will go. and to a certain extent it has to do with fear associated with being left. CBK: Eating too much.. you know. 113 . Well I figure. Well she's got some stuff. GJC: Oh... Some addictions are healthy.... Can you specifically state something. Another one is endorphin from runners. or a shot in your arm... that we have such a large populace that cannot meet it's needs directly? Because you said it was from having an abundance. Do you ever procrastinate? DC: Well procrastination is a good technique to all of a sudden have to do something. DC: So.. Adrenaline is the most powerful drug that we have.. So my relationship with my daughter is really pretty good. What happened for me is that I was lucky in that in that I recognized early enough that there something wasn't right in the way that I was treated and in the way that I was treating people.. It ties into there not being enough of something and so it's an overcompensation. All that is Co-dependency. It's an addiction. to grow and to live... DC: Anything like a shot of alcohol.... I figure that probably 95 to 98% of the population in the United States is co-dependent to one degree or another.. to. Could you say it was not taking care of your own basic needs directly but finding an alternative? DC: Yeah. You know. DC: For her it has to do with being lonely.. because you can go back six or seven generations and find somebody that committed suicide because they couldn't deal with the addictive process. I'll go through relationships and relationships and relationships. I'll meet new people and I'll be with them and all of a sudden they're no longer exciting and it goes on and I'll find somebody else.. it's basic Bulimic characteristics. personally. We all eat. CBK: Why do you think it is from our society.. but without the vomiting part. and what happens is. CBK: Well... CBK: That's why I'm late all the time! DC: Yeah. Drugs. and being bored. Adrenaline. what would you call..a family tree... subterfuge. All children need things. some codependent behavior. And for me. and what happened is that their kids picked up their same mannerisms and their kids picked up their same mannerisms and things like that... CBK: Wait. GJC: And in the book I also have a section that says Chi Kung is "The Perfect Positive Addiction.. but it's like all societies. I'll give you a better example of Codependency. Would Co-dependence then.. that's a co-dependent behavior. eating.. a hierarchy of needs that weren't fulfilled. CBK: The adrenaline rush that I'm gonna be in trouble.. It has nothing to do with being hungry. CBK: O. It's like any impulsive/compulsive behavior is a symptom of co-dependency.K.... with being abandoned. but the thing that I'm dealing with right now is in relationships..

To give you an example... he had a conversation with me and he started talking about how we need to this..but what we've used as... GJC: Cast offs and rejects. in his company. to help him. Well. but from an environmental standpoint? CBK: Uh huh? DC: Where did most of the people in the United States come from? They were the disenfranchised. tell her. we build it in. It's a big enlightenment process when we call somebody up and say.." what do you call that? Wouldn't they be considered strange? DC: Well yeah.. I had a conversation with my wife's boss today. the vast majority of native Americans. Because you figure if 10% of the organization. CBK: Where do they live? Out back in Wyoming? (laughs) DC: No. what they did was they took a peace-loving people. you know. so he was looking to me. the disenchanted people of Europe and the world.. well Kevin. DC: But these are the people that don't get caught up in other people's garbage. if they are in fact co-dependent. and forced them out. DC: Yeah." and I'm working on it myself. And when they came here. GJC: I don't know any of them either! DC: A lot of this is really. I'll tell you what. the first thing you need to do is to talk to her and not to me. How's that? GJC: Pretty cool. And I said.. who may or may not have been co-dependent under the current terms that we're using. and he said that he needed to talk to my wife about. they will have mannerisms and management traits that will carry off into the entire organization making the entire organization dysfunctional. 114 .. DC: How she needed to make a behavioral change. they need to do something else. they need to do this. Actually. One of the techniques that you can use to get out of co-dependency and that is to "draw the line. CBK: Uh huh. They came because they were either driven out or they couldn't get what they wanted in Europe. not from the genetic standpoint. And so generation by generation by generation. We've got co-dependent organizations and the work that I'm doing now has to do with healing organizations. "hey. what did you call it subterfuge? We've. I'm lonely will you talk to me?" instead of feeling lonely and eating the chocolate cake in the refrigerator. Let's get back to if this is in fact hereditary. If 97% of the populace is co-dependent. DC: Let me answer the first question. they need to do that. they live all over. CBK: That's real interesting and I've always thought that sanity was a matter of majority rule. so they moved but a lot of them came because they were driven out. and he mentioned two or three things. I don't know any of them. or whatever the other co-dependent kind of behavior would be. the right 10%. then the 3% that is "normal. CBK: Uh huh.

I would have said.. CBK: Right.. I said memory. find your own boundaries. Some people will transfer from an organ to different muscle groups. it's gonna hurt. DC: Anyway. right in that area. DC: So. If you aren't resisting it just gives.. it's his job. you'll have the emotions. You should have seen the shift occur in him and he changed.CBK: Right. Because it's not my job. The way that you check is real simple.. DC: Remember what I said was that my whole body was frozen up and the reason is because people tend to store emotional feelings in their bodies. the vast majority in pictures.. some 115 . he pays her. with medium/mild pressure. GJC: It's amazing. I don't know exactly how it works. "that's not my problem" and not feel responsible and guilty about it. DC: Well yeah. The only way it hurts is if you're resisting.. What happens is that emotion is typically tied into memories that you didn't deal with completely. "Guilt" is a lot lower down and for me. There are different organs that seem to store a specific type of emotion or feeling. rejection. he needs to go to her. a lot of that for me is in my fat. CBK: Uh huh. let's see what should do…" CBK: And probably have been flattered that you were asked. well it's been a lot of fun so far. that makes sense. It's not my problem. DC: That's it... you've got something in there. DC: I know that for me "abandonment" is right at the bottom of my sternum. most people tend to have memories. And as long as it resists. If he's got a problem. you have a false superiority/inferiority. right in the middle of it. GJC: Or it's like the victim/savior roles. CBK: Uh huh. She's the manager. GJC: Organs or body areas. but it seems to work that way. I gotta tell you. Yeah. if it's real sensitive. That's the first time in my life I think I realized that I can say. if you're resisting and you put pressure on it. uh. like tapping of a finger or thumb and if pressure on that area elicits pain. I meant memory.. you came to the right place. All of the surrounding area has to do with loneliness. This may not solve all the problems you'll ever run into in your life. DC & GJC: (simultaneously) CO-DEPENDENCY. So because of that. They will become elicited and you'll start to experience those more fully and as you do that you'll. you know. gotten real. it is in my groin area. fear. well I feel like we're old friends in a way. He's the owner. CBK: And in the past you would have unwittingly or unconsciously taken that on. He doesn't pay me. not to me. specifically in organs. Does that make sense? CBK: Yeah. if it hurts. DC: Of course. That's emotion or memory there. soap opera. DC: Co-dependency is when somebody needs you. but it will sure clean up a lot of old ones.. "let's take a look at this.. Connie.. and that is a symptom of. as the body part is being softened up. draw the boundaries.

those emotions in those parts of your body. GJC: I'll put this under the "Abandonment" section. DC: Great Stuff! 116 . Almost guaranteed that you've stored it some place.. DC: That's how he does it.people will have in sound connotations. DC: Well what you're doing is preventing that emotion from being fully experienced and you've stored it. GJC: That's what I do on everybody when I do the Hands On. DC: That's basically in a nutshell what Hands On. to help you break loose.. but the vast majority are pictures and you'll have experiences out of your life come up that you didn't even know were there. DC: Does that make sense? CBK: Yes. At least the first part of it. So it actually is "buried. CBK: Uh huh." You "bury it" in a body part. it does. Transfer of Power. like that kind of response.. you know things like that.. CBK: Uh huh. Transfer of Power is all about. It's like all of sudden you get scared and your shoulders draw up.

I feel like. Have you seen these reactions in your students? GJC: I don't know why these reactions are being called "danger signals"! If you're a body builder you're always at risk of hurting yourself somewhere along the line. I'd go to him and ask: "What should I do about this?" His standard answer to reduce its importance was: "When you're on a long road and you run over a little rock. What we're talking about here is a sophisticated inner science involved in this art. No pain. People have been led to believe that if they sit in the lotus posture and stretch one hand over their head and hold the other at tan tien while they abdominal breathe. With your busy practice. so for a little while you'll be uncomfortable. I don't mean they should get ripped off by thinking that it will take ten or twenty years. If you just sit it out. work in the operating room is one big risk! If you want to be good at anything in life you must develop the warrior spirit to handle the so-called "dangers". IFK: Many of these articles describe "abnormal reactions" or "danger signals" occurring as a result of practicing Chi Kung. you'll get through it" because the human body is amazing." This kind of reassurance is usually all that's needed. no gain. this stuff takes awhile to learn. The more of these symptoms that a student has when practicing. they're going to become masters. what are your conclusions? GJC: All the articles I've read have been too superficial to do justice to this Nei Kung practice. a problem at work. the better. but these aren't problems to worry about or to deter you from practicing Chi Kung. powerful.

Years ago in the heart of my Tai Chi training.why the superficial material? But there is always a purpose in putting something forth: they've prepared the public for what's to come. Does the person giving the warnings really know what he's talking about? Usually the warnings are coming from a place of fear. of trying to protect the system. If a student has the right teacher. do you stop to see what's happened to the rock. Just take a break and come back with a different exercise and slow down. or do you just continue on. He doesn't have to sit on the doorstep for five or ten years before the "venerable Master" decides to share a secret or two.

if I hold both of your hands and decide to give you a shock. it's not hard for him to expand this idea into the more abstract one of seeing Jing as the organism's generative and regenerative energy system. you're legs and arms will tremble. that is. if you look at the way most people move and the way they sit. it’s the energy of raw Jing surging up within you. and now . to another person and they can feel it.

GJC: Only 50% true. when practicing Tai Chi or sitting in a Chi Kung posture that you're not used to and you start shaking. and proper body mechanics. in the abdomen. there are two attitudes you can take: "Oh my god what's happening to me"!

Look at our favorite Western sport. a power source that at conception activated cells. it's a continuous thing. that's what he's been chasing after! He should be excited and grateful about it!

So. when my students have their first vibrations they're very excited. I'd rather give the student four or five sentences he could relate to and say: "I know what he's talking about. It is caused by a blockage in Chi flow. the vibrations then are cultivated Jing. So here. but may also be experienced in moving forms such as Tai Chi Chuan or Pa Kua Chang. I remember my first intense vibrations and having my Tai Chi brother touch the base of my neck to see if he could feel anything.

Chi energy (internal energy) has a completely different vibratory frequency. but when we're talking about Chi. Many students base their choice of a system or the quality of their chosen system on how many movements there are in it. and faster vibrations. on the exhale focus on the body to contract. to develop and "burn" it into form. I've used "The Condensing Principle" to condense all the material into something that makes sense. It's the process of packing the essence of things into every thought. what we're doing is refining this same basic technique to the point where it goes from as gross as the body contracts." In my Chi Kung training. and that can save the student years of struggle. roll/pull. walking. What's important is. IKF: So how do you put this mechanism to work? How do you harness the Chi and make it work for you? What's your basic approach here? GJC: The concept that cuts through the fog of ignorance and secrecy."Fah Jing" is the "mysterious" power of the great Tai Chi Masters. on the inhale focus on the body to expand.to help the mind direct the Chi and Jing through the auxiliary Chi tracts. you have to learn more than one step.

But to sense it and use it with purpose takes technique. and a slower. and Shen all at the same time. the ignition system. Chi vibrations are in the next level and are shorter. Chi is the energy source. More important than the Chi pathways used during the movements is the specific emotion that becomes associated with that movement for each 121 . and second. and Chi Kung is the method of transformation. to become a dynamic self-powered individual is "The Condensing Principle. What's the idea behind the variety? GJC: Basically they all accomplish the same thing . to condense. into the core of the body. not how many movements there are. "Oh. but I know of one that has 138.

Here's one basic condensing technique for developing Jing: whatever the posture. it sensitizes you to where you are in space as a physical. It's like dancing: when you're studying it. fighting." "The Condensing Process" is one of creating an inner vacuum with Chi. On each inhale and exhale there is a simultaneous mental focus to expand and contract. and at the same time focus on the inhaled Chi to expand. thinking. his has only 68. smaller. and at the same time focus on the inhaled Chi to contract.

It's as if you signed yourself up for five or six years in Taiwan or China and said: "don't let me out until my time is up.

IKF: The basic premise of your work then is that Chi Kung and Tai Chi offer a comprehensive program for optimal health? GJC: Right!

Apply your Chi Kung while having sex and see what you discover on your own. the books on The Taoist Sexual Technique that currently exist. I have found form to be the least valuable. but Jing is absolutely necessary and should be at the heart of your practice. focus their attention on form. My presentation of The Taoist Sexual Technique will be for introduction purposes since detailed instruction might require a whole book to itself. Few books have been written on this obscure subject.

PO: We've had you on the show a couple times and you've talked to us about Temple Style Tai Chi Chuan. PO: O. almost four years. from your environment. you're moving energy and you're condensing energy. The Spinal Touch Seminars. is that it's purely "internal. PO: No. your business is called Energy for Life Systems." after I'd been in the system about three and a half. but that's not what we're here. And." what you're doing is. Now it's not normal sexual energy which almost everybody has. when I said "Condensing. about 20% shows up externally that you can see a movement or something. how to cultivate internal energy in general. in order to understand what we are talking about. which means "Energy Work" in Chinese.K. What that is. we're talking about some-thing very specific called "Jing. We've talked to you about quite a few things.. what you're doing is developing and cultivating sexual energy. to give you a little background first is. This is like the end result. "Jing" is a transformed accumulation and directed use and form of this energy so that it really is a lot different. a Tai Chi Master from Chicago." I mean "sucking energy from your Universe. The way that I found this. this goes into learning the Internal Meditation System that I teach and adapting it while you're making love. GJC: Hi." and sort of "converting coal to diamonds" in the process. I learned what is called "Chi Kung. When you cultivate internal energy or "Jing.. This week we have live in our KBOO Studios." very little. GJC: Right. Clyman. This is your host Paul O'Brien. Most of my Chi Kung system is done either sitting still on a chair or on a cushion. The Inner Power Workshop. Every week at this time we invite you for a visit with selected leaders in transformation and self-discovery. so let me talk a little bit about. GJC: That's right! PO: What is Sexual Kung Fu? GJC: OK." the Tai Chi System that I practice. we haven't talked about that yet. POl: Gary it's good to have you back on the show." in Chinese. 165 . Gary J. I started Tai Chi in 1974 and in about 1977.RADIO SHOW: SEXUAL KUNG FU Good evening and welcome to Pathways. PO: O. we'll have to do that on another show. the last thing that you learn in "Temple Style. GJC: Yeah. Well first of all.K. and tonight we're going to talk about Sexual Kung Fu. GJC: When you practice Chi Kung. one of the end things. PO: Your Personal Power Training Seminar. in general.

up the back of the spine and down the front of the spine. Tantra is a little different than The Taoist Sexual Technique. Yes. PO: Chi Kung is a type of meditation that has to do with internal alchemy so to speak? GJC: Yeah. PO: Now The Micro Cosmic Orbit is something that flows between the both of them? GJC: No. Now most men are uncomfortable about having sexual energy in 166 . PO: An obstacle. it's not like TM. One of the major ways and what I concentrate on in my training that I do. and I'm not just talking about when you're "inserted.." it doesn't have to be that way. is we just completely annihilate any energy that we've been able to accumulate and build up. when you practice Chi Kung and you cultivate internal energy. now I can see how an individual could use cultivation in terms of getting more personal power from within. I'm talking about while two people are "making love. or somebody else's Micro Cosmic Orbit? GJC: Well. cultivating and harnessing internal energy and developing your WILL. Chi Kung. PO: Oh.GJC: And when you cultivate internal energy. The Micro Cosmic Orbit is your own internal circulation.K. When two people do it and I don't mean just sitting next to each other.. you've had it two years and then you slit it's throat." when one or both parties circulates their internal energy. You can circulate without any sexual contact. It's like you treat the orgasm as. it's like meditating together but it's like a feeling that you've never experienced before. however. PO: So this is a special kind of meditation that you teach? GJC: Yeah. you raise it. Now. imagine raising a dog. and all that. Well. You get it as a puppy.. The Taoist Sexual Technique allows women to orgasm and doesn't allow men to. which is what I teach. it affects you in a lot of different ways. but it's not primarily a stress reduction practice. GJC: Something very very special. when you're having sex. And then you get another puppy and you raise that two years and then you raise that for another two years and then you slit it's throat. I've been doing this since 1977. you've got something called Tantra yoga. is I help people develop a sense of what I call "self-containment. Dual cultivation is doing it together. there are stress reduction aspects. and what that means is that they are not really reliant on things or on other people. or like different yoga systems where there's stress reduction. It's primarily for utilizing. what we do when you have an organism or we ejaculate as men. so how does your Micro Cosmic Orbit communicate with somebody else. It's circulating energy inside the torso. and Tantra doesn't allow women to either. you don't communicate with anybody when you're doing it yourself. What about dual cultivation which is really what we're talking about tonight? GJC: "Dual cultivation" is the process of two people circulating their internal energy in what's called The Micro Cosmic Orbit which is taught in my workshop." That means the ability to be self-contained. that becomes a very precious thing and you're not so anxious to give it up. primarily. So. PO: So what difference does it make whether you're having sex or not? GJC: Well. which some people listening to the program may have heard about. PO: O.

You know. PO: But it's highly pleasurable to expend sexual energy. and do all the other things that make you. I'm sure they're a lot of men that are confident. They drink or they. PO: Now wait a minute! Wait a minute! There's a lot of men." That's a different story. which some people do. because that same energy that you use when you're having sex is the same energy that you use to create dynamic physical presence.. They associate it with being uncomfortable. There are a lot of people that are having all kinds of different aches and pains all over their body that if they practice Chi Kung and they didn't just lose it on a regular basis. PO: That's good. It's really good for health benefits. isn't it? 167 . well what is the problem that cultivating Jing solves. is this an all or nothing proposition? I mean is it. you can use it for prolonging sex also.. that a lot of men are rather attached to the feeling of having orgasm. (Note: I hate Chia's books. Cultivating Male Sexual Energy. or addresses itself to? What is it good for really.. PO: O. they would just feel better. from New York and that's a whole book on what the benefits are and how to circulate this internal energy. rare. did you figure that out all by yourself? That's because they're always trying to get rid of their sexual energy.. GJC: No it isn't. to be self-assured and to have self-confidence. it's good for a lot of things. self-assured.. which a lot of men do. I mean? GJC: Well.. It's like they treat themselves. They can get it at your local bookstores. What you do when you're practicing The Taoist Sexual Technique. So it's kind of like regulating the orgasm is good.. We're on the radio here.. even if you don't? GJC: Yeah.) PO: Now it seems to me Gary. This is also called "healing energy. but some do. GJC: Right. That's a book by Mantak Chia. if you go an extra two hours or so and at the end of that you decide that you want to "let it out.. Horny.K.. There is also a woman's book called Cultivating Female Sexual Energy or Ovarian Kung Fu. you can not do it at all. I'm careful. I don't do that necessarily. they do all kind of things." PO: So. GJC: I almost forgot. is you treat the orgasm like it's something extremely valuable that you don't want to have. Taoist Sexual Secrets of Love. but we're not talking about cultivating "Jing" or cultivating sexual energy. They keep healing and healing...K... They never give any clear instructions and I do NOT advise reading them anymore. that still ejaculate.their bodies so what do they do? They do whatever they can to get rid of it. The book you have in front of you is called. So what do you do when you're practicing The Taoist Sexual Technique. PO: O. GJC: You're very perceptive Paul. etc. Or.

Tell the audience some of the effects of semen loss. PO: Uh huh. GJC: Fatigue. which is what I teach in the training. woman are treated differently. not women. You lose the electrical and chemical energy that you're starting to work with. from the male point of view? GJC: Well. We're talking about men now. GJC: But outside of that.. You lose you're drive in general. PO: Treated differently by whom? GJC: In the Chinese old society. I'm not saying that ejaculation is not good. O. women can have organisms because they don't lose what men lose. PO: O. You lose you're self-confidence. I mean it really is revitalizing! PO: Well what about. PO: What does that feel like afterwards. But.. men can't do that. many. when I was in high school we used to hear about this thing called. 168 .. whether you're practicing Tai Chi or whether you're doing some sort of other meditation. it's not depleting for a woman and maybe they even pick up energy. PO: Right. because you're not just leaving your energy down there in your prostate gland. or whatever you want to call it that we're doing here. PO: In the Taoist system the woman is encouraged to have orgasms? GJC: Right. GJC: Right. many. or two or three. or thirty. but it's really not good and you know. Some of the adverse effects. worn out. PO: In other words. I mean as we are both men? GJC: You never did that before? (laugh) PO: What does it feel like to make love with a woman and not have.K. GJC: No that's not it with this. what does it feel like to make love with a woman. What you're doing when you practice this Chi Kung. this sexual thing. I'm saying that if you're cultivating internal energy and you ejaculate. because first of all. GJC: Or many. but how long do you it spend it for? About 10 seconds and then it takes about 5 days for you to accumulate it again... GJC: "BLUE BALLS?" PO: Right.GJC: Yeah. well. I'm not saying that sex is not good.. or anything.K. you can get up and go run around the block without having to worry about being tired. is that you're circulating it throughout the rest of your body. GJC: And not lose it? PO: And not ejaculate as a man.. then you're losing exactly what you're going after when you practice.. and the woman has an orgasm. Some men think they can.

but Winter is terrible and Spring is O. You might as well do it in spring. Now. Can you say a few words about what they used to call "The Three Treasures?" GJC: O. It just wears you out completely. I tried to practice every single practice and bring it back to where it was when I quit the practice before. what I 169 . it's not so bad because things are growing and they're green and sprouting. you learn pretty fast. you just keep your energy. GJC: Right. when I was in training full time. I said no sex. the Jing was considered to be your very precious thing. I'm the only person teaching publicly that you can find anywhere. If you lose it in winter because of the nature of winter. PO: By celibate you mean no ejaculation at all." If you do it during the spring. because I was practicing 6.K. 10 hours a day. I was practicing full time because I knew that I was going to make it and I did turn out to be the survivor of my generation. Chi (which is an electrical energy that does not show up as a physical vibration in the body). GJC: No sex. if you're going to ejaculate the best time to do it is in spring. And Shen is like your essence. which is a very very hard thing to do. Chi. I said I practice Tai Chi. PO: That's the "Chi" in Tai Chi." I just wanted to know what you meant. Now if you ejaculate. the way I teach Shen in my training is a little different because I've taken it out of a Taoist context where out of ten people only one person understands what I'm talking about. what I tried to do was. I was celibate for two and a half years during the time that I was practicing and learning all these things. and Shen in a way that when I'm talking about Shen in my training. But when you practice this stuff. PO: No sex with a woman? GJC: No sex with anything! Nowadays that means anything. Most people when they asked you what you do for a living. "The Three Treasures" are Jing (which is cultivated sexual energy). it's an extreme. PO: According to the ancient Chinese. PO: Different people mean different things by "celibate. you really lose all your body heat and all your "protective mechanisms. Summer and Fall is not so good. you try to develop a certain ability to be with yourself in a very self-contained way. you know. GJC: No sex. So when I was practicing Chi Kung in the old days.K. They used to look at me pretty funny and say. That's what I was doing. But when men do it. PO: You mean your generation in that particular school? GJC: A year or two either way. "What are you talking about ? Because other people practice Tai Chi three hours a week. PO: So. you did that. you lose that self-containment.PO: Women don't? GJC: Women don't lose it like that.. or your spiritual essence. 8. when you practice Chi Kung. I've modernized the whole concept of Jing. Now. GJC: Hey. you said you did this.

I've given people all the basics that they need for practicing Chi Kung. which include some what I call Tai Chi Connective Meditations. The Personal Power Training is a self-contained unit that I teach in two days. when I teach the Sexual Kung Fu part of what I do. It's who we are in spirit and sort of superimposing our WILL into our environment in a way the way we plan it. but when a couple comes in together who are already a couple and they learn this. Have you ever done a workshop on Sexual Kung Fu? GJC: Yes. The Personal Power Training and then they already have the pre-formatted vocabulary that they can understand what I'm talking about and it's a very simple procedure. That's taking the internal essential energy which is our spirit inside which is different from our sexual energy and from our electrical energy.. PO: Do you think there is much interest in that these days? Are people ready for this? GJC: I think there is. but it's using the mind training. Many years ago. I've been doing this for a long time myself.. GJC: Yeah. GJC: There is very little Tai Chi in my training.." So. It's just words. PO: So then they have a context for it. it's after they've already taken my training.. they can't. however. I've created the workshop and I just finished one today and it's really good to see what people get out of it. I decided to teach this material and I needed to set it up in a way that people could understand it without any previous experience and I did. it's very exciting. It's very exciting to watch people practice this. the Tai Chi Connective Meditations. PO: Oh. PO: O. I do teach Chi Kung. I did a couple of years ago in Chicago. PO: O. not the mind.K. I see. I think the people that want to learn it don't know what they're talking about because they don't have any "vocabulary. because without the training they don't know. affirmations. to create the picture of your particular universe the way you want to and then it just helps things fall into place better. so it's connecting body and mind. PO: So it's kind of like facilitating the creative force. but the mind training and incorporating it directly in with the body. So. However.K. what I've done is I've taken about four to five years of Tai Chi/Chi Kung training and I've created it in a way that I've recreated a system that is pre-formatted so that I know exactly what the material is that I'm going to teach. This is probably the most exciting thing that I teach in my workshop. In my particular way of teaching. and projections. which is not Tai Chi. So that's related to Chi Kung training? GJC: Right. GJC: It really can combine them as a single unit.mean is connecting it with visualizations. because they really can change a lot of things. it doesn't mean anything. PO: Your Personal Power Training then I assume contains elements of Tai Chi and. What do you think the effect of dual cultivation of sexual energy has on a relationship between a man and a woman as a whole. however it's very rare to find two people who even 170 . Now. GJC: Absolutely! And it's really exciting.

It's very simple but the books still aren't that good. GJC: Yeah. I mean if he ejaculates." You don't have any "rooting" for what the books are talking about. but it takes too long. Right? I mean. they read the books and the books make total sense. GJC: Not much. PO: Do you think that this practice ever came naturally to mankind? GJC: Yeah I do. when I first discovered this. doesn't it? Isn't there a natural cycle? GJC: Yeah. but they need a common vocabulary and a languaging system they can use. It flows inside your body. but a different kind of survival environment. Now. I was doing this a long time before the books were out. PO: You mean like a physical survival. So this is a direct extension of that particular idea of cultivating energy and not losing it. because all it does is confuse you because you don't have a "physical anchor. or a man that knows it or wants to do it and a woman that couldn't care less. So I can tell you from personal experience. see I've been doing this a lot longer than the books. And what I got from practicing this and the way I learned how to do this was from practicing the internal energy cultivation standing meditation in Tai Chi that I learned in 1976 and 77. but usually not. because why work for years on cultivating internal energy and then get in a relationship and have sex and then lose everything that you've been working for. PO: How long does it take? GJC: You lose five days after and four days before of all the work that you've done. PO: So. you would also lose a great deal of your ability for self-defense purposes. except for the book I'm writing. do you think it's natural for a man to make love to a woman and then just roll over and go to sleep? Does that make sense? GJC: That's what is natural here." you know. as a matter of fact. PO: Well. If you were in "survival. If you lost your seed.. Usually you find a woman that knows how to do it or wants to do it and a man that couldn't care less. but it doesn't have to flow to outside your body.care about it at the same time.. PO: It must help a little bit. your precious thing. PO: Well. Like reading the books doesn't do anything. GJC: Right. energy has to flow. I mean. they can get the background from me. living in a survival environment in which we are. This is an extension of the internal energy work directly. PO: But it rebuilds itself. But when they take my training. it's like taking whatever love they have and expanding it a thousand percent. even if it does. it flows. But when I work with a couple that really together want to learn it. it just. I don't mean fighting necessarily. I'm talking about the environment. 171 . PO: Is it possible for couples to learn this on their own? GJC: If they have a background they can.

Jing is also the thing that if a Tai Chi Master touches a person and sends them flying all the way across the room. you don't do that. On top of that. if you lost it. then you know what I'm talking about. Now Jing can be used the same in many ways. GJC: At all. PO: And how does this help women? How does it help women for men to cultivate their sexual energy along these lines? GJC: I don't know what you're talking about. But that's because he "lost it. If you're cultivating internal energy and you spend a lot of time doing it. This is the answer to all that stuff. you also have the capability of being able to connect your internal energy to your bone structure and "BAM" that's where the explosive power comes from. it definitely changes the way you are sexually. it can be used for healing purposes... which is your personal cultivated sexual energy which is called Jing. PO: Well what did you mean." PO: Uh Huh. but they definitely don't have problems now.GJC: Yeah. It's just a different usage for the manifestation of Jing. what you're able to do with your "precious thing" is that you're able to use it in business. PO: It is. you used a peculiar phrase "that precious thing?" What sociology does that come out of? GJC: That's Chinese.. I mean they didn't have problems originally. "that precious thing" is the thing that means the most to you. 172 ." But if you practice this. in relationship. Women. it's a different kind of cultivated sexual energy then it would be if you went through the Tai Chi system that I came from and cultivated. GJC: Yeah. PO: It's logical that that would happen then. which does happen frequently. Now if you take my training and you cultivate internal energy. I mean from practicing this stuff. GJC: So when you do The Personal Power Training and you learn Chi Kung from me. or women in relationship? PO: With a partner. and in relationship to your self-defeating attitudes. PO: What's the background on behind that? GJC: Well. You can get rid of self-defeating attitudes and you can develop self-esteem and self-confidence and all that other stuff that goes along with it.. because when you've got a Tai Chi foundation or background and you cultivate internal energy. Do you mean women who cultivate for themselves. However. I've had men take the workshop who were concerned with more sexual performance things. you don't develop that. PO: Uh huh. are there any benefits for women in a "dual cultivation" practice? GJC: Yeah.. which is called "Fah Jing.

particularly men. GJC: Yeah. GJC: Sure. PO: Uh huh. instead of living in their environment. then this is the absolute answer to that particular problem. PO: Now you've talked about self-containment a lot. you know they're doing wonderful. of cultivating sexual energy. the way it works. the way the think. So if somebody goes to 40% or 50% available. GJC: When people work with me in the training what they're able to do is they're able to really get that they are not their problems and they are not their environment but they do in fact live somewhere inside their physical bodies. PO: It seems to me. GJC: Yeah. Does this training have any value or people in that position? GJC: Well it depends on if their sex is detrimental to them or not. well I don't know what you mean by "the subject. the more you have to give. If they're right it does. 173 ." Because you know. I can see the value of self-containment and not you know just spinning off and shooting energy out every time you get the urge. or living in their problems. they just recognize it and they're finally able to do something about it. are addicted to sex. PO: So really. I think that if you're not self-contained you can't do anything for anybody or in relationship to anybody until you've got yours together. most men don't think it's a "problem. or addicted to orgasm. PO: Right. but I'm wondering what is the relationship between self-containment and the ability to love somebody. Do you think that it increases that? GJC: Yeah." PO: The subject of human sexuality. But if somebody's really aware of how tired they get when they do it.GJC: Yeah. They're completely different people by then. Most people don't know the difference so it's not a big deal. PO: Studies have shown that a lot of people. GJC: Now the self-containment issue that I work with in the training helps people really be somewhere inside themselves. You know. The problem is. that's 100% increase already. It really improves love relationships if they're "right." If they're wrong. but if you can go from 10% to 20% available. they start to think together and there are all sorts of things that happen. no problem. When people develop this selfcontainment characteristic that they get from the training. In the way they talk. Most people are only 10% available. it doesn't. PO: It seems to me that it really would improve the quality of the love making from the female point of view. It brings a couple much closer together. they grew up in the 50's or the 40's and they see it on TV and they saw it in the movies and it's just something that's expected. there's an incredible amount of ignorance around the subject in general. living in their situations. But there are men around that don't view sex the same way as everybody else. You know there's a horrible poverty mentality that runs through this area here. love is a form of energy and the more energy you have.

no. They kept this material for themselves. GJC: Yeah..and it's very exciting to watch what happens with people. where I come from. who really are getting a lot of benefits and some of the benefits are tied into this particular thing. PO: Uh huh. You go to Chicago. In The Tao of Love and Sex. as almost a distraction. Whereas if you practice this particular kind of sex. PO: So. I mean it can be used really in a bad way for people. You know. But he talks in that book about. to learn more about it? What would be the first steps for people to take? GJC: Well they could buy the books.yes. So would you consider that sex is an important opportunity for spiritual development? GJC: Yes. PO: Uh huh. PO: Right.. I am. The Mantak Chia books. And it will explain cultivating internal energy. To never ejaculate was the ultimate ideal for a man and conferred immortality upon one. but not much. sex is usually in my book considered something like drinking. as well as I'm going to tie in the sexual part that will be a special chapter and questions and answers. let's say that people don't live in a geographical location that's convenient for them to take one of your trainings? What do you suggest for people in general to increase their awareness of these kinds of possibilities. This isn't like learning Karate.GJC: Oh Yeah. How do people. It won't be ready for another six months. I spend too much time explaining myself instead of communicating. Chia's books are a little better. PO: There was another book out called The Tao of Love and Sex. to never ejaculate. PO: Uh huh. In fact. yeah. PO: Well that book was written by a Chinese man. They've got to find somebody that knows this stuff or come and spend two days with me. he talks about how in ancient China it was considered much more viral to be self-contained. you know.. GJC: See I avoid using terms like that because no one knows what I'm talking about. or cultivating internal energy. drug abuse. it's almost got to come from another culture before you learn anything about it.. There's a lot of people that I'm been working with in Portland. Absolutely. I was just over in Europe and I noticed how natural people were with their intimacy and affection and it seems very out of place here. GJC: Jolan Chang. if you're talking about it otherwise . 174 . GJC: Or they can contact me and I'm writing a book right now also. and self-motivated. Are you familiar with that book? GJC: Yeah. and see what happens. and self. it develops you as an individual and it sort of sets you up to be self-contained. There's a Karate school on every corner. That's not as technical as Chia's books. or gambling. I mean up until my generation this stuff wasn't even talked about. if you're doing it the way we're talking about here . I think they're in trouble. I would. you know. This is almost hidden. This was kept secret.

Maybe twice a week is O. On behalf of KBOO Radio 90. but to regulate how often he ejaculates. or any of the trainings that you give because we're running out of time. He says in there that's its a good idea for a man who is following this practice to make love very often. PO: Well.K. GJC: Yeah. GJC: Right.7 FM.K. and there's a spiritual dimension to what's happening.. signing off.. PO: And he says that its a good thing to make love often because both parties pick up. there's a time.7 on your FM dial. PO: Right. broadcasting at 90. PO: Well that's it for tonight Gary. Thank you very much for being here.PO: Right. 175 .. there's a seasonal influence and there's also an age influence. O. would you mind telling the audience how they can get in touch with you if they're more interested in this. for somebody's in his 30's. GJC: Thanks for having me on. GJC: O. PO: It's been a pleasure and it's a fascinating topic. They can call me at my office in Chicago at (312) 527-1188. right. This is Community Radio KBOO Portland. Gary. GJC: There's an exchange of hormones and energy and all kinds of other things. this is Paul O'Brien of Pathways..K. if not every day.

and one drop of sperm is worth 100 drops of blood. To "catch up" after having an orgasm requires a lot of work. This is a very complicated and specific technique. WOMEN AND MASTURBATION Masturbation for women is also self-destructive because it reduces their attention span and makes them daydream. you will be wasting your time. SAVE YOUR SPERM 176 . but you should know that one orgasm in winter is worth 100 orgasms in spring. if you are "in practice." If you are. Having sex and having orgasms are not considered the same. Masturbating attends to lower your "deservingness" which leads to more inaction. and more. Masturbation is the most important of "Clyman's Four Unbreakable Rules" for this reason. can you see the drawbacks of having frequent orgasms? MASTURBATION IS A TOTAL WASTE You won't go blind. because everything is growing and blooming. If tension is what you want to get rid of. Now there are certain ways to have sex with a woman when you lose less. but you might feel drained. If you think you can continue to masturbate and excel in Chi Kung. that's why masturbating is so destructive. Don't confuse the two. not to mention the huge energy leak it is." During the summer and fall. Hopefully you're not a member of "The Sex Without Partners Club. If your "life force" is what you want to get rid of. but you must be able to separate your Heaven's Essence from your Earth's Essence. I am not condoning having orgasms. you can have them much more frequently. masturbate. They are actually performing the ultimate energy destruction act. It is death to your Chi Kung practice and must be discontinued and avoided at all cost. If you are trying to cultivate sexual energy (Jing). Stop beating off! HOW MASTURBATION DESTROYS SELF-ESTEEM Masturbation is a great way to eliminate any resemblances of self-esteem. Many women already have trouble achieving what they want in life. Having sex can have its drawbacks in many situations. you would see just how humiliating "jerking off" is and what side effects it causes in men's dynamic physical presence. If you could be in my shoes and interview as many people as I do.HOW MUCH DO ORGASMS COST YOU? When a man has an orgasm with a woman. In spring. Hands Off! What do you think you are trying to accumulate. but sex in moderation is strongly suggested. cultivate. self-confidence and discipline. I cannot stress this enough.

This ties in with "Commanding Respect vs. is we work to find the origin of their self-confidence or self-disciple problem. This is very common in all people. Applying the principles from Chi Kung helps traders make more confident and disciplined responses to what the market is doing. Some traders call this "kissing ass" but I would prefer to call it "socializing. The three major problems with commodity traders are: 1) 2) 3) Low self-confidence Low self-discipline Low self-esteem All three of these problems exist in all traders to different extents. Many people with selfesteem problems secretly have the hidden fear that they will be discovered or found out not to be what they seem to be. I have mentioned this in other parts of the book."

There is a difference between "low-self esteem" and "low self-image. A confidence problem shows up as the inability to stay in a good trade or a trade that is "going your way. Then we try to pull that out using the "Hands On. one of the first things I do is help them by figuring out which of the three major problems affect their trading the most.CHAPTER #9 ."

A "discipline" problem shows up as the inability to get out of losing trades or trades that "go against you" when you know you should. I am referring to trading confidence exclusively. confidence and discipline show up differently. Most traders have a combination of these two problems. marriage. simultaneously. traders need to be part salesman to get along with their fellow traders. When I use the word "selfconfidence problem" I don't mean some traders are afraid of their own shadows. it enables commodity traders to have the ability to do what they really know they are supposed to do." Another important part of what I do with each of my private trader clients. Most people that are not traders truly don't have the concept of "self-confidence" as I mean it with traders. With traders it's not just that Chi Kung effects the way they trade. many times in a day. In other words. Demanding Respect.

I strongly disagree. These are two distinctly different feelings. which make you feel like you simply can't do something. "with a self-esteem problem.

I purposely mention this a few times because it bears repeating. they tend to lose their "umph" by about 10:30-11AM. various nutritional supplements can help alleviate and eliminate this particular problem. I will expand on this in my next book. losing their concentration." In my personal opinion." Again. This is the dumbest thing that can be done for these symptoms. it would be allowed on the market and would be considered an "addictive and dangerous drug. The second personality comes at the most inopportune times. BAD CHOICES WHEN TRADING MAY BE RELATED TO SUGAR The symptoms that many of my clients report to me. when your blood sugar is low. FOR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS Chiropractors and other health care professionals have another set of specific applications. The GTT (Glucose Tolerance Test) can be given. Sugar will end up killing you. before giving a scheduled lecture or presentation. It will feel as if you're missing something or sleeping through the "big" move. This is a problem relating to the adrenal glands and the pancreas and is a condition called Hypoglycemia or "low blood sugar. and the second personality is Dysfunctional in that.

Hypoglycemia in commodity traders shows up as losing your ability to make decisions and concentrate in the late morning. This is when all your "bad choices" and "dumb mistakes" seem to be made. Depending on the severity and frequency of the symptoms. say at 7AM. The time this happens will vary with different people depending on what time of day they get up. This is a very common problem.

This problem is the root of many other problems in a health care practice. they can actually improve their conditions quicker. which I no longer practice. For instance. they were enthusiastic and able to send their friends and family to me. I had a lot of personal referrals because my patients or clients used to get results. these same principles apply to all health care professionals regardless of specific profession.

This problem is sort of a "communicable disease" which I call "poor communication. then the patients don't want to send any new patients or referrals to him. to talk to friends and family more clearly about it. LOW SELF-IMAGE: A COMMUNICABLE DISEASE If a Chiropractor has a confidence problem.What do you think the results are of improved communication skills in your health care practice?

More practice will be the easiest way to "burn through" these hard to circulate areas. Acupuncture can help, but the acupuncturist must be great in Chi Kung. Don't go to someone who does not completely understand your situation. Read what Lou Buscemi wrote about his situation. Contact me if this happens or has happened to you. Q. Why do I notice a "strange smile" on my face when I practice Chi Kung, especially The Micro Cosmic Orbit and Heaven and Earth Meditation? A. Various emotional expressions surface while practicing Chi Kung. Different people experience different emotions. If a person is primarily anger-motivated, many times they will experience their primary emotion during the practice. Certain sitting forms also bring out certain specific emotions and they will vary from person to person. The "strange smile" that this question is referring to denotes a certain pleasure that is experienced inside the body. Because these pleasurable sensations are happening internally, our bodies have unusual ways of manifesting them. When I was a student I used to laugh and cry for no apparent reason. This went on for a few years prior to my "Great Energy Awakening." Q. Do you perform "Inside Air" at times other than specifically during "Inside Air?"

A. No. The "Inside Air" details are performed exclusively during "Inside Air" practice only. The four sets of details should not bleed into other portions of your "Daily Practice Routine," ever. If it does, this is nothing more than sloppiness. Outside of the Daily Practice Routine, Inside Air can be practiced all day long. Many of my clients, as I've said before, practice briefly in the morning and augment their morning practice with many brief practice sessions. Because of the inconspicuousness of Chi Kung, it gives you the ability and flexibility to practice nearly anywhere, anytime and any place. Q. Why does my tongue get cramped every time I practice?

A. The tongue is a muscle and muscles should be used. When you "keep your tongue on the roof of your mouth," it gets tired just like any other muscle in the body. Don't worry, it will get stronger with practice. Q. Why do my eyes feel "pulled down" in the direction of the energy flow when I'm practicing really good? A. By leading your energy with the mind, your body has tendencies to physically follow the flow of your energy. Closing your eyes is not advised because it leads to day dreaming, sleeping and many other distractions. It is said that "you lead the Chi with your eyes" and in practicing Tai Chi this is true; however, Chi Kung is different. In Tai Chi because the focus is on the musculo-skeletal structure and on movement, the mind goes first, the eye goes second, and the body follows third. In Chi Kung this is slightly different. The mind goes and the Chi follows which has very little to do with the body or the eyes. Q. What does the phrase "the speed of light" mean?

A. "The speed of light" signifies the incredible velocity of the mind. In that I mean the vibration at which you can circulate your Chi. The "speed of light" as I have mentioned before, is

198

separate from the physical limitations of the body relationship. While circulating your Jing, start by connecting "one circulation per breath." After this has been accomplished, start to circulate two times per breath and so on. As you practice, your first goal should be to pick up where you left off at the last practice. This attitude helps develop the quality of consistency. Consistency" is one of the most important factors needed to be successful at anything. As your speed increases, you will feel gaps in your circulation. Smoothness and fusing the beginning of one circulation to the the end of the last will help connect you. "The speed of light" refers to continuously circulating your Jing as one circulation. The image you can use for doing this is the picture of a fan belt or rubber band with the head and the tail connected, with no gaps. Q. When I accelerate to "the speed of light" in my Micro Cosmic Orbit, why does it seem to become a thought process instead of a circulation? A. "The speed of light" is faster than the body sensations can express. At a slower pace, your nervous system can keep up with your mind. "The speed of light" travels at l,000 circulations per breath. Attaining this speed should be a goal for advanced practitioners. The illusion of a thought process is related to the mind going so fast that there is a dissociation from the body. This again is related to Chi which is internal energy and Jing which is internal power. This has been explained in other areas of the book already. Q. What happens to people who use breathing and meditation to achieve altered states of consciousness? A. Altered states of consciousness come in many versions. Some are positive and act to empower people and some are negative causing distress. First, I'll address the positive. One of the positive aspects of meditation is that it can help people become more physically present and functional in their bodies. The word meditation has many meanings. Using meditation in regards to Chi Kung is quite different than in other systems. Many people's understanding of meditation leans toward diffusing, stress-reducing, relaxing and dispersing of energy; however, in the Chi Kung context, it is the condensing, empowering and raising the practitioner's availability of his or her own personal power that is emphasized. The application of Chi Kung helps many people from all walks of life take more responsibility for their own future and actions. Raising the physical energy availability of the practitioner is equivalent to fitting more "life" into a smaller space. When a practitioner has more life, minuscule tasks are done almost effortlessly while difficult tasks are done more easily. Another positive application of Chi Kung is its valuable use in relationships. When a practitioner utilizes the internal energy cultivation exercises and becomes more complete, centered and whole, this changes the quality of that person's relationships. Because a practitioner is more selfcontained from the practice, this removes many of the wishy-washy traits and characteristics that we all possess, thus making relationships more concrete in general. The negative sides of using meditation includes the reduction of the decision making capabilities of the novice, but not with Chi Kung. Stress reduction seems to be a positive by-product of meditation; however, by using Chi Kung, stress reduction comes from a different perspective. The Chi Kung perspective of stress reduction relates to the person's ability in decision making and in feeling complete in those decisions, thus reducing stress.

199

The "groundedness" or lack of it depends on the individual's application of various techniques. The harmful side effects of meditation, not Chi Kung, have lead to mixed opinions on the validity of meditation's benefits. The individual's constitution combined with the particular technique that is practiced will produce side effects, if they are not balanced and are incompatible. If the individual's constitution and technique are compatible, many wonderful benefits can be experienced. Q. When practicing "Sitting Forms with The Mind Training," should my abdominal area expand and contract? A. No. "Reverse breathing" should be done throughout your "Chi Kung" practice. "Wrapping" is a term I use to illustrate how you should be holding your abdominal area. It's as if you are wrapped with strong tape. Anyone who has ever had a broken rib can relate to this idea. Q. What is the vibrating that happens while I am practicing Condensing Breathing sitting?

A. Some of the vibrating is muscular; most of the vibration is your body connecting with your intention. The vibration is in response to the contraction of your internal energy. Q. Do women do anything different while practicing Chi Kung than men?

A. Yes. The circulations are the same; however, if a woman has her period, instead of keeping her mind at Tan Tien, she should keep her mind at the Xyphoid process (lower tip of the sternum). Q. Where's the transition point when doing "The Micro Cosmic Orbit?"

A. The rising of the Jing is considerably easier to direct with the mind than the sinking of the Jing. The transition area can be anywhere from the top of the head to the upper chest. Many beginners experience the common difficulty of losing control in their circulation and regaining control with a gap. The gap has already been explained as a "dead spot." Q. Please explain the term "Overlapping Condensing."

A. The term "Overlapping Condensing" is like the opposite of the onion image. The onion concept represents layer after layer being removed. While practicing "Overlapping Condensing," the center is shrunk more and more, all on the same breath. This technique is of great value and can accelerate the recuperation of the energy loss after sex. Q. What about closing your eyes when practicing? Is that advised?

A. No. Closing the eyes leads to drifting and dispersing and should be avoided during most of your Chi Kung practice. On only one specific technique, and you'll be told which one, is it advised. Q. What are "Shooters" and how do they effect your Micro Cosmic Orbit.

A. The image of "a boiler" accumulating steam and periodically releasing an excess of steam is the image utilized to understand shooters. "Shooters" are a sudden surge of energy released into the central nervous system during practice. "Shooters" can go in either direction, up or down, or in both directions at the same time. In my own personal practice many years ago, "Shooters" preceded a major opening and the completion of my own Micro Cosmic Orbit or my "Great Energy Awakening."

200

"Shooters" should not be feared; there's no cause for alarm. Q. When generating heat, why is it easier in the beginning stages than at higher levels?

A. For beginners, the sensation of heat is more noticeable because their energy is much more scattered. As your practice develops your body heat is contained in the torso. The primary function of the body heat is to guarantee the organs protection, warmth, and sufficient energy to perform their physiological duties. In an advanced practitioner, because their energy is already gathered and accumulated, the sensation of heat is much more familiar. If a practitioner becomes sick, the cold is felt more and restoration is appreciated more fully. Q. When circulating, how do you coordinate your breath with your orbit?

A. The breath, in The Micro Cosmic Orbit, at beginning stages, should be in unison with the Chi circulation. By this I mean, inhale, and the Chi rises, exhale and the Chi declines. After you've developed more skill, you can then circulate more than one circulation per breath. The end result of this practice with the circulation acceleration leads to circulating at "the speed of light" or 1,000 circulations per breath. With this, I mean, at a certain point in your progress, your Chi circulations in The Micro Cosmic Orbit only do not rely on your inhales or exhales. In order to circulate 1,000 circulations per breath, the mind training at more advanced levels becomes independent of the breath. Q. Please explain the concept "extending the mind?"

A. Extending the mind utilizes one of my four basic principles called "Projecting." Extending the mind is practiced in many of the techniques. The application of "extending the mind" implies the mind is larger than the body. In this I mean you are capable of doing circulations beyond the "physical boundaries" of the physical body. This will happen naturally. You do not need instruction in how to do this if you practice. Q. Please explain "Heaven and Earth Meditation," "The Hour Glass Meditation," "Double Funnel Meditation," or "Twin Tornadoes Meditation" in depth?... A. "Heaven and Earth Meditation" is used in conjunction with condensing on the inhale and projecting on the exhale. "Heaven and Earth Meditation" is the base technique for applying your affirmations, visualizations and impregnating the universe segments of the daily practice routine. "Heaven and Earth" meditation has other names which signify the function of the practice itself. These other names are: "Double Funnel," "Twin Tornados," and "The Hour Glass Meditation." Q. What is known as "A Nine Channeled Pearl?"

A. The term "A Nine Channeled Pearl" describes an increase in "density and intention" in moving the Chi with the mind. The image is symbolic of trying to breathe through very small openings in a physical object, like pores of a porous stone. This has basically two applications. The first is trying to thread a string through the various convulsions or channels with a thread. By this I mean, sensitivity is required to penetrate the delicate unseen openings of a fragile pearl. The second is as if you are trying to suck a golf ball through a garden hose. This action would require intense air pressure to cause movement. Pressure from the mind can increase the intensity and fullness of the circulation. This is similar to blowing a whistle or a wind instrument that is plugged up. This is an excellent image to use for increasing the velocity and fullness of your internal circulation. Q. What are the various sitting posture alternatives?

If you end your Daily Practice Routine with "Layered Condensing. you can sit with the soles of your feet facing out to your sides. that's exactly what I mean. Squeezing the sphincter muscles at first should be done with one long solid draw as consistently as possible. you can sit with your insteps flat on the ground. When I say squeeze the urinary and anal sphincter muscles. which is the most difficult posture. With this I mean. Actually physically squeeze your urinary and anal sphincter muscles. you actually "suck up" so you don't "wet" your pants. This is wrong.

If you feel it leaking out. Sitting cross-legged is my first choice since most people can do this without excessive physical stress but for those who cannot tolerate this simple posture. Q. To contract your anal sphincter muscle. The Mind Training always takes priority. If you end any other way. Q. When contracting the urinary and anal sphincter muscles. in my system. The energy leaks out because your mind is not directing it to stay in. you're not following my prescribed method. Remember as stated in the beginning of lesson #1: keep your eyes half open and half closed. this is not enough. Q. it is. As a practitioner becomes more advanced and comfortable with the practice the sphincter muscles can be pumped without fully letting go. To contract the urinary sphincter. What about closing your eyes when practicing? Is that advised? A.

A few months later while practicing Chi Kung something extremely unusual happened to me. the energy stays connected to us in our energy reservoir called Tan Tien. Very shortly after that." if you will only stick to the format. Many times my Tai Chi Master told us that one day something would happen and we would clearly be different. Most people were afraid. The excitement involved with receiving these strange sensations propelled me to ask my teachers for advice. He was quite vague in his explanation of this future event. Why? A. When doing "Double Palms. This practice is done very frequently whether you know that you're doing it or not. This happened after approximately four years of full time practice. I was different. Q. This form and many others fall into the category of Macro Cosmic Circulation. This sucking action. Macro Cosmic Circulations which are explained elsewhere in the book. I was very excited.

What is the relationship between Tan Tien and The Micro Cosmic Orbit? A. when exhaling. Explain more about your Great Energy Awakening? A. What are "shooters" and how do they effect your Micro Cosmic Orbit? A. The energy fills us. When we expel energy out of our bodies. on the inhale. Tan Tien should be thought of as a boiler that creates pressure and steam. The frequency of these "shooters" increased and they began waking me up from a sound sleep. And suddenly without warning. During this period I lived in my car for three months and practiced nearly all my waking hours. I purposely have structured my system to be "fool proof. Q. however. I had retraced and experienced my conception and my life changed forever. This excitement or energy for life propelled me to accelerate my own personal practice. it can be released and harnessed into The Micro Cosmic Orbit. 206 . In 1976. not to be confused with Condensing Breathing can also be practiced in standing postures such as: Basic Path Training. No one seemed to understand what I was talking about. Two years later I opened my first Tai Chi school. and blow out only through the palms. prior to my Great Energy Awakening. In the Circulations. When practicing Condensing Breathing we can actually absorb energy from our environment. I have never heard any other reference to what I've named "shooters. where does the energy come from? Does it in fact. At this time I was practicing an average of six to ten hours a day. go from Tan Tien out your arm? A." All I have is my own personal experience. are Chi circulations that connect the four extremities and the torso. It all paid off. To suck into the knees and palms at the same time is a very common practice. This refers back to the "rubber band" principle. When this steam accumulates to a substantial force.

This is very important in relationship to changing your world. The reason for this was. Internal power must be cultivated before it is used. Q. is that the correct image?

An acceleration practice refers specifically to "speeding up" the frequency of your micro cosmic orbit circulation." Not that it was not right." Q. sucking in the knees. Yes. Q. you continually increase your "density. especially since its purpose is to circulate and store sexual energy? 207 . to the chin. your ability to explode is directly reliant on your ability to first condense. up and down. you have an unlimited capacity to store and conserve it. Heaven and Earth meditation consists of creating a vacuum and blowing it out. drawing from the arms to Tan Tien. not when needed. "Layered Condensing" is the name of a technique that I've created for sucking in more and more. in the old days. This acceleration practice I teach to my clients and students after they have performed the Daily Practice Routine with proficiency. but just that I have created an option. Where's the transition point when doing The Micro Cosmic Orbit? A. I believed people had to go through the whole system to get it.

The extension of Heaven and Earth Meditation which I've named "Impregnating the Universe" is practiced on the exhale. depending on their ability. This is the opposite. the location of the direction change is not important. Everybody understands the concept of peeling onion skins. As a beginner. Does Chi Kung allow a man to have sex with a woman. In The Daily Practice Routine. Different people change direction in different places. Please explain the term "Layered Condensing?" A. top of the head. This area is related to what I call "dead spots. by blowing out the top funnel only. Since we are talking about energy and not water. and with the creation of the Personal Power Training I have proven my old belief system "wrong. The transition point in The Micro Cosmic Orbit is the spot where your circulation changes direction. Heaven and Earth Meditation is the "base technique" used when practicing your affirmations and visualizations. Heaven and Earth Meditation is a practice involving sucking from two primary and opposite directions. In concept. This is practiced near the end of The Daily Practice Routine. and the reservoir of Tan Tien.

A. The Taoist Sexual Technique is a direct application of Chi Kung while having sex. Ejaculation control is the primary focus. Since the purpose of Chi Kung is to cultivate energy, ejaculating may prove disastrous to your Chi Kung practice. For best results, "seminal fluid retention" is advised. However, since this is near the 21st Century, these practices have become nearly extinct. Nowadays, The Taoist Sexual Technique can be used for the treatment of impotency and to prolong sexual intercourse. It can actually be used to lengthen the amount of time you make love before ejaculating. I do not expect many people to become celibate; however, the practice of The Taoist Sexual Technique as explained elsewhere in the book, is an excellent alternative. Q. What is the difference between masturbating your energies away and ejaculating them with the help of a sexual partner? A. To some people "masturbating" is considered having sex; however to me, they are clearly different. When you masturbate, yes you, you get nothing back in return; O.K., at least it's "safe sex." However, it is unproductive. The problem with masturbating is there is no energy exchange, no hormone exchange, and no emotional exchange unless you're masturbating with another person (spare me!). When you, a man or woman, have an orgasm while masturbating, you get nothing back in return. This is a waste and is not advised if you're trying to cultivate internal energy. Q. How do you know that all exchange of energy and hormones is positive or healthy?

A. Energy, in my opinion, is neither positive nor negative. However, through having heterosexual sex, ordinarily there are hormones exchanged with or without ejaculation. This is because there are other secretions excreted besides just sperm. It is important for men to absorb these "female juices" and for women to absorb these "male juices," sperm not included. While using condoms, absorbing female juices through a man's penis is inhibited unless he's using sheepskin. However, sheepskin condoms, though a good birth control device, do not provide protection against AIDS. This lack of protection is due to the permeability. However, this permeability acts as a screen to keep sperm from leaving. That's because sperm are large enough to not pass through a sheepskin membrane, but viruses are smaller and can get through without obstruction. Concerning the hormone exchange, I believe the hormones readily pass through the sheepskin membrane, thus allowing for absorption. Whether AIDS can be passed through hormone exchange, I'm not sure if anybody knows the truth on this. So know your lovers. Q. What's the advantage of absorbing someone's hormones?

A. As I've mentioned elsewhere in the book, a man needs some Yin energy and a woman needs some Yang energy. If a woman gets a wimp, this Yang energy might exist in small quantities. If a woman has larger biceps than you, tattoos on her arms and a mustache, I think her Yin energy might be relatively limited. I personally like very feminine women. Q. What if the person doesn't have any energy?

A. All people have different levels of energy. Energy always flows to the lower level between two people. In this I mean, if you have a great deal of energy and you have sex with your lover who has less energy, you will have a tendency to feel somewhat depleted; however, you can prevent this depletion from happening to a large extent if you practice Chi Kung and apply it to The Taoist Sexual Technique. However, prevention of energy depletion is why my advice to my male clients is to find a lover at least l0 years younger.

Q. Over a long period of time (for me, three months), Chi Kung seems to make me more sexually active. While I don't mind this, how can I convert this sexual energy into something more productive, rather than wasting it every Friday night? A. Don't go anywhere on Friday nights and practice Chi Kung instead, by yourself or learn The Taoist Sexual Technique. It really works. Q. A. How does a man recuperate after ejaculation? "The 10 Steps to Sexual Recuperation" are the following: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Layered Condensing Standing Condensing Mother Meditation Sitting-Stillness Condensing Micro Cosmic Orbit Sitting Forms with The Mind Training Standing Condensing Bone Marrow Exercises Floor Stretching Standing Condensing

This order I have personally found to work quite effectively. Q. Please explain the influence the moon has on sex drive and why "menstrual sex" is different? A. Our bodies are mostly water. The moon affects tides and human fluids. Hormones flow much more freely and they tend to be more reactive. Having sex with a woman during her period can have negative side effects for the man. "Menstrual sex" has a higher vaginal temperature and men have tendencies to ejaculate more freely, losing their seed, their WILL and their Jing (cultivated sexual energy). Q. How do I control my ejaculation?

A. While having sex, the number one important thing for a man is to ejaculate and lose his seed or spirit. Applying the Chi Kung techniques taught in PERSONAL POWER TRAINING are directly related to man's ability to do this most difficult task. Condensing Breathing and The Micro Cosmic Orbit are the 2 main techniques used while having sex. One important alteration in the downward cycle of The Micro Cosmic Orbit is to bypass the genitals and go directly to the tip of the tail bone. If a man does not do this correctly, he is in big trouble. Women do not have to worry about losing this because nature works the opposite way. The Micro Cosmic Orbit can be used by both men and women with excellent results while having sex. Q. How does one practice "Dual Cultivation?"

A. "Dual Cultivation" can be practiced between 2 Chi Kung practitioners. Sexual contact is not necessary but it makes it easier. "Dual Cultivation" is 2 people doing The Micro Cosmic Orbit together at the same time. The energies mix, and each person helps complete the other partner's internal circulation. This can be performed in many positions and postures. Q. Why does the mind become scattered concerning sex?

209

A. While performing sex, the Jing is agitated and scattered. The manifestation of the scattering shows itself as confusion, forgetfulness, and low energy. The cure for this condition is to practice Condensing Breathing, or "Layered Condensing" to be more specifically. Direct accumulation of Jing is the only other way to counter this distraction other than not ejaculating. Q. How much progress is lost when a man ejaculates?

A. After a man ejaculates, he loses 4 days before and 5 days after worth of his practice. Ejaculation is the most destructive and disruptive action to your Chi Kung practice. Women don't really lose their Jing like men do, they just re-distribute it or move it around. Q. Regarding an "energy loss," what is the difference between masturbation and having normal sex? A. The effects of masturbation totally deplete your cultivated sexual energy reserves. Normal sex, that is sex with a partner, does not totally destroy your energy reserves. On a scale of 1 to l0, masturbation reduces your energy reserves to 0 while sex can reduce it anywhere from 8 to 2 depending on how much you lose. When I say how much you lose, I'm refer-ring to how much sperm you lose rather at the moment of ejaculation. What you do with your mind is more important. This is a subtle practice. Ejaculation is possible without losing high percentages of your cultivated sexual energy but you must be very good at Chi Kung. Q. Can women be energized by sex?

A. Yes. A women's relationship with energy is much different than that of men. When women have orgasms, usually they do not lose excessive amounts of energy. These female orgasms many times circulate the energy throughout their body. By nature, women can have multiple orgasms and become energized. Some women even can borrow or steal energy from their male sex partners. Men however, depending on their age, usually cannot have l0 orgasms in a row. That's because energy leaves the body upon ejaculations and does not simply recirculate. Anatomically speaking, women gather energy during sex and men disperse it. However, if a man practices The Taoist Sexual Technique, he can apply the "gathering" principle during sex. Q. Sometimes when I practice "Ovarian Circulations" the energy gets stuck at my sacrum. Is there anything I can do to move it? A. The problem is that you're not making a "loop" at the bottom of your circulation to bypass your genitals as you practice The Micro Cosmic Orbit Q. At what point and how do you stop the ejaculate response?

A. First of all, when having sex and practicing The Taoist Sexual Technique, you have to stay ahead of the game. If you wait until the last possible second to try to prevent your orgasm, you're a gonner. By this I mean, "ejaculation control" must be practiced before your sperm and prostate fluid are traveling up your tubes. If you wait for the last possible second, it's usually impossible to control your ejaculation. My advice is to practice Condensing Breathing, Inside Air, and The Micro Cosmic Orbit, then try to apply them while having sex. Q. this? What harmful side effects can come from "ejaculation control" and how do you prevent

210

A. If practiced properly, The Taoist Sexual Technique has relatively few to no side effects. However, when beginners practice, many times they wait too long to decide to not ejaculate; in this instance, The Taoist Sexual Technique is not a reliable form of birth control. As for the stress of the moment, controlling your ejaculation must be determined prior to the critical point. There is no turning back. Q. A. Q. Please explain the various "hand to genital circulations" and how do you use them? This will go in my next book. What's the proper way to circulate your Jing while having sex?

A. First of all, never let your mind get stuck in your genitals. Even when practicing The Micro Cosmic Orbit or Inside Air while having sex, at no time should you lower your mind. This means, you practice your Chi Kung exercises while having sex as if you're not having sex. If you can do this, you truly can control your mind. Q. At what point and at what regularity do you do the technique?

A. The Taoist Sexual Technique can be practiced many times a day or twice a month. The frequency is up to the practitioners. I have no specific recommendations except "do what you can handle." Q. In your opinion, what is most difficult time to control your mind?

A. If you can concentrate and control your thoughts and mind during sex, you can do it any and all the time. Q. Does a man actually have an orgasm when circulating while having sex or does only "part" come out? If it doesn't come out, where does it A. If it's done right, "part" doesn't come out. If "part" does come out, for all practical purposes "all" comes out. The point is: you don't want to ejaculate. When you don't ejaculate, you take your cultivated sexual energy and inject it into your Micro Cosmic Orbit. If you ejaculate, you can't inject your Jing into your Micro Cosmic Orbit. This is a goal in The Taoist Sexual Technique. Q. When does the sperm start to form. Explain the thick (Earth's essence) and the thin (Heaven's essence) sperm and their relationship to each other. A. Separating Heaven and Earth's essence is a very high level and difficult practice. This is actually ejaculating but retaining a certain part of your discharge. When you ejaculate while practicing The Taoist Sexual Technique, you might notice sometimes your sperm is very thin like water or very thick like Jello. In my opinion, the thick discharge is Earth and the thin watery discharge is Heaven's essence. I have noticed slight to severe energy losses depending on which has been excreted.
